What a thrill it was to record and release my first album. It was an exhilarating process and I am so happy to be able to share it with listeners.
The playlist includes wonderful music by great songwriters and we've gone in some bold directions with tight arrangements and unexpected twists. Others songs are beautifully simplistic. What connects them all is the wanting and yearning for what fills us, completes us and makes us feel alive.
I couldn't have done it without a great and giving team of artists, including my music director and co-producer J. Gawf, engineer Marty Bierman and my wonderful musicians. I can't think of a finer group to create with.
Take a listen. I hope you'll fly with me.
