New Album Released! The Inside of the Outside
So happy to announce the release tomorrow, December 4, 2015 of my first professional album, THE INSIDE OF THE OUTSIDE, with Jeff Coffin and the Crescent SuperBand, featuring Special Guest Artists:
Randy Brecker – trumpet
Rashawn Ross – trumpet
Branford Marsalis – tenor saxophone
Roy ‘ Futureman’ Wooten – percussion
Victor Wooten – electric bass
Trombone Shorty – trombone
Robertico Garcia – trumpet
Pedrito Martinez – congas/bata drum
Dayron Rodriguez – bongos
Juan ‘El Peje’ Carlos Rojas – congas
It was a great experience in being in the studio and being a session musician for a multi-Grammy award-winning artist. Jeff Coffin is the saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band.
Here are some great reviews from some famous cats:
“When I listen to this band I hear a lot of things: powerful musicianship with fresh energy, technical expertise, soulful delivery, artistic depth, and confidence. I could go on and on. If I didn’t know it, I would never have guessed this was a high school band. It’s just unbelievable. The future of music is in good hands.”
– Dave Matthews / Dave Matthews Band
“I forgot temporarily it was the Crescent Super Band when I heard it…I thought it was top flight cats from LA or Nashville…Really swingin’!”
– Randy Brecker / Grammy winning trumpeter
“The Crescent Super Band is absolutely amazing!”
– Steve Smith / Legendary drummer of Journey
I get top billing on SWEET MAGNOLIAS. Take a listen and buy the album. $7 from album sales goes to the music school, as does 70 cents from every single sold.
UPDATE: Within 24 hours of its release, the album was #4 on iTunes most downloaded jazz albums behind Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett/Lady Gaga and Miles Davis!
