A long time coming for this release, but we’ve finally released our duo collaboration album Conversation. Two old friends from different parts of the world, and two professors from two different New Orleans universities, put their talents together to revitalize classic Jazz tunes. It only seemed fitting that we record this album. Our influences for this record include Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Steve Lacy while still pulling from more modern influences such as John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman, Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau. The graceful piano and cool sax improvisation on tracks such as “I’m Old Fashioned” and “Corcovado” will make any Jazz enthusiast close their eyes and drink in the easygoing melodies. We only hoped to do justice to these powerful timeless classics.
Mark your calendars for our CD Release Concert at Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro this coming Sunday, August 27th, 2017. Shows at8pm & 10pm. I hope you can make it to our concert!!!
