[In Retrospect] is now available! At this time, please contact me (through the contact page) if you would like to purchase a copy of the new recording or any of the charts on the album. Stay tuned for more information once the album becomes available through CD Baby, iTunes, and other avenues.
[In Retrospect] represents a look back at my last 32 years from the perspectives of composition, performance, and education. This recording consists of twelve original compositions selected from my writing during this period. All selections were originally conceived for big band and have been adapted for the trombone-featured 9-piece group heard on this recording.
01.01.11New Website and CD Project
Hello, welcome to my new website. Please bear with me as I continue to add new items during the next month.
In addition to teaching at SIUE and performing with Cornet Chop Suey, I'm working on a new CD recording for Victoria Records featuring arrangements of some of my original music for 5 trombones and rhythm. The music has been recorded, mix is scheduled for January and the CD should be ready for release sometime this Spring. This project has been unique and challenging, and I'm looking forward to it's completion. Thanks to Bill Becker for funding it, and to all the musicians involved (Zeb Briskovich, Rick Haydon, Cody Henry, Jim Martin, Jim Owens, Dave Stamps, Reggie Thomas and Miles Vandiver).
