I had an absolutely wonderful week in Cologne recording new charts for an upcoming album with the great WDR big band. What an honor and treat working alongside these fabulous musicians! Just emerging from the isolation of Covid (Germany was still pretty shut down), it was a joyous affirmation of the power of live music-making. Likely release date for the album will be spring of 2022; but I’m pleased to be able to share a little preview video of one cut “And Your Point Is. . . . ?” in the Featured Videos column.
