Album Notes: "New music. Does it have to only be danceable or video-driven these days? I think not. I believe we can find an area of overlap between music that is cerebral and that which is more visceral. As a composer and performer, I try to find ways to meld these two areas of my creative psyche. This album contains twelve tracks of new compositions for trumpet. The tracks range from "new classical" to those that might evoke thoughts of a movie soundtrack, to pop and hard rock. Seven of the songs are more introspective and compositionally driven, while the others take on a more "popular" set of styles, including lots of high note work in the solo trumpet. Several songs also feature some improvisation. I think most all people that listen to purely instrumental music will find something to like on this album, as I have tried to be stylistically and sonically diverse, as well as creatively sound. Thank you for taking the time to read this far. I hope you do, indeed, find much to enjoy here!"
