My contemporary jazz album “Fictional Characters” is released in association with Michael Silverman and Autumn Hill Records.

Featuring myself as composer and guitarist, along with musicians Steve Hunt, (long time keyboardist for the late guitar legend Allan Holdsworth), as well as drummer Archibald Ligonnière and bassist Romain Labaye, (both of whom have been renowned guitarist Scott Henderson’s band* on his recent tours and latest album “People Mover”, *which was just voted Best Jazz Fusion Group by Jazz Times Magazine’s 2020 Reader’s Poll)
