Album Description

I started playing sessions on July 6, 2020 with Billy Mintz and John Hebert under a turnpike bridge not far from my home. We would play 3 to 4 times a week, slowly more friends began to come to play with me in addition to the trio with Mintz and Hebert. I want to share some of these field recordings with you and want to begin with this session that took place on October 19. My walk to the spot with both horns on my back was so full of joy and anticipation because I was going to throw sound with some of my favorite improvisors and mentors - my “ Jefes”. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did . I can’t begin to thank Randy Thaler and Kevin Reilly for their commitment to documenting these sessions - it still keeps me looking forward and positive during these trying times . Thank you for listening.
