CD - Deviate from Standards Download
This album started as a COVID-19 escape. A way to keep playing music, even as live performance was not possible. As the world began to open, I was able to play these pieces in public and learn more about how I wanted to present them. The compositions are taken from the last four years of my life; earning my doctoral degree, and getting more exposure to jazz composers from a variety of eras and genres. This project has also helped me stretch out and learn more about my own playing.
