A presence among the New York Jazz and new music community, he has played in ensembles led by Kenny Wollesen, Federico Ughi, Joel Forrester and others.The music on this album was not preconceived or premeditated in any way whatsoever. The ensemble's method of collabora9on has been to begin playing without any discussion of what is to be played or how the music should be approached.

It was unanimous among the group that the musical chemistry and dynamic we shared was fertile enough to merit further exploration.
