Future projects whet the appetite. Dates are set that will feature Musillami and Schuller in a trio with bassist Joe Fonda and in a quartet with Rosenthal and bassist Dave Shapiro. This will be released as a two CD set. Tentatively slated for the end of 2003 is the Thomas Chapin Brazilian Songbook. " I am trying to get together musicians that had a close association with Chape: Marty Ehrlich, Andy Jaffe, Art Baron...to do arrangements. I already have some of the charts. A lot of this music has never been recorded. Baron would do an arrangement for brass trio, Ehrlich for woodwind trio, Jaffe for string quartet. The music will be given a different voice...centered around a guitar quartet with Madsen, Shapiro and drummer Mike Sarin." With its impressive track record in such a short time and strong commitment to its artists, Playscape's vision of "Recording creative music by serious uncompromising musicians" has now become reality.
