This recording:
Hey Lester! Is a composition dedicated to Lester Bowie who was a great jazz trumpeter and married to the late great Fontella Bass whose big hit was Rescue Me. Lester was one of my biggest influencers and inspirations. A bit more about my original compositions: New Leans was inspired from the rebirth of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. The concept of Afro Blues was an idea inspired combining the blues of Nat King Cole and John Coltrane together. What’s Up is a different piece I created alongside my girl Dana Leese Roth. Three Strikes was originally in 3/4 which I later changed to 4/4.
