My "Unsung Heroes" recording project is finally ready for the world, but I need your help to complete the job and give the music its just due.

After almost two years of work, my "Unsung Heroes" recording project is finally ready for the world! "Unsung Heroes" pays tribute to and features the compositions of jazz trumpet giants such as Joe Gordon, Tommy Turrentine, Louis Smith, Idrees Sulieman, and other greats who have flown under the radar of popular acclaim despite their artistry and influence on players such as myself. This expansive project, the maiden effort from my new venture Hollistic MusicWorks, comprises no less than 19 different compositions; a full 2 CDs of swinging music featuring the Unsung Heroes band of myself, alto sax giant Vincent Herring, new tenor sax star Alex Hoffman, veteran piano whiz Rob Schneiderman, top call bassist David Wong, and swinging young drummer Pete Van Nostrand, with conga king Little Johnny Rivero added on selected cuts.

The recording is finished, but I need your help to complete the job and give Unsung Heroes the chance in the jazz marketplace it richly deserves musically! I have put a great deal of my own personal resources into this project in the quest to bring my musical vision to the public without the "middleman", and I'm now reaching out to my fans, friends, and lovers of classic jazz music to lend a hand with meeting the additional expenses of:

Design for the CD and online materials

Marketing and publicity expenses

Radio servicing and promotion expenses

Preparation expenses for play-along tracks and "GarageBand" style multi track audio stem packages (to play along with Unsung Heroes and even record your own part on the recording!
