Obsessed and driven by his musical visions, he’s managed to squeeze out a handful of recordings over the years while somehow maintaining a stable group in the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra. If you like music that’s engaging of both mind and pulse, this is—as are all of his recordings—a feast. Anyone who has played or come in contact with this too overlooked aggregation will agree it is a distinct occurrence.
