I’ve produced a handful of recordings.  They were mostly for Katie Eagleson or my own music, although the first project was the 1999 release from the late Bill Collins titled “Footprints of Your Life” on Zah Zah Records.  Almost all of the recordings were done at MorningStar Studios with the help of Grant MacAvoy and Grammy-Award winning engineer, Glenn Barratt.  Katie’s CDs have received airplay on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, WNYC, WXPN, WRTI as well as other broadcast stations, and WQXR's "American Standards.”  Reviews of the CD can be found on Katie’s website.  Working with the group of people involved in the making of these recordings has been a highlight of my musical career.  There is always another project in the works and we will be back at MorningStar soon.

what's new

At the end of last year I went into the studio to record six of my big band arrangements.  We are now in the process of mixing the recordings.  I'll keep you posted on our progress.

I've been attending the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop since September and as a result I have some new compositions/arrangements for big band.  I'll make them available soon. 

I have a new arrangement for Big Band available on the Store page titled No More, No Less. This is a jazz ballad featuring alto saxophone.  Recently, I got a chance to hear it played by The Water Gap Jazz Orchestra.  They sounded great and I was pleased with the chart.  It is based on an assignment given to me by Phil Woods. Unfortunately, he never got to hear it. That's what happens when you wait 30 years to do your homework. No More, No Less is a tribute to the master, Phil Woods.
