I assembled a great band for this project: Craig Fraedrich, trumpet; Luis Hernandez, tenor saxophone; Matt Niess, trombone; Paul Henry, bass; and CV Dashiell, drums. The tracks were recorded at the Shenandoah Conservatory Recording Studio in Winchester, Virginia on November 21-22, 2015. Golder O'Neill is the engineer and producer and Dan Shores (Sono Luminus) mastered it.  It includes 5 originals, 4 arrangements, and one solo piano performance. It is one of the first recordings on the new Shenandoah Conservatory Swarm Music Group label.
