My first full length studio album offering a diverse combination of jazz classical and folk cello music!
About This Project:
After years of playing on others albums I am finally recording my own!
As a classically trained cellist I have always felt limited by the possibilities offered by the music I played. In the past several years I have been learning a different idea of music and cello playing, that combines the virtuosity of classical cello with the freedom and inspiration of improvising and composing in the moment, and the soul of music that lives in spontaneous invention. This album will bring together a lifetime of diverse influences, from Bela Fleck to Thelonius Monk. J. S. Bach to Gunther Schuller, combining haunting dissonance with the unbridled joy and deep sonority of the cello.
I am exceptionally excited at the opportunity to make these ideas into a reality, and look forward to working with an amazing cast of musicians. Already on board is the incredible Grant Gordy on guitar (David Grisman Quintet, http://grantgordy.com/) and I will be working with two time Juno Award winner Jayme Stone (http://jaymestone.com/) as producer.
