Hello everyone –

I’m very pleased to tell you that I recently recorded with Toshiko Akiyoshi and Lew Tabackin.

Toshiko and Lew are two incredible musicians and the most wonderful people. For those who are not familiar with their work, their big band is one of the most legendary in jazz, Toshiko is a 14-time Grammy nominee, they have written some wonderful music through the years and are still kicking! Highly recommended music.

The session was done at MSR Studios, recorded and mixed by Dave Darlington. Special thanks to Brad Leigh and Monday Michiru. Big ups to the musicians: an excellent group of string players, Lew Tabackin on flute, Paul Gill on double bass, Aaron Kimmel on drums, Toshiko Akiyoshi conducting and yours truly on keyboards.

Looking forward to more sessions like this one, this is why I love what I do…
