My second CD was released in August of 1998. It features my quartet and quintet (with saxophone, drums, and one or two basses), plus duos with trumpeter Hugh Ragin and a few solo tracks.

The material is a mix of originals and seldom heard compositions by Charles Mingus, Keith Jarrett, David S. Ware, and even Jacques Offenbach. As with my debut, The Spanish Inquisition, the music is coming from the jazz tradition, but leaning a bit towards the avant-garde.
