My debut album! Which received a ****-star review in Downbeat Magazine, jazz's leading publication, thanks to the efforts of our own David Kunian. I am very happy to be able to finally bring you this record directly, after years of simply being stuck on CD Baby. Happy listening, and hope you enjoy.
