This is my first collaboration with great guitarist , producer and arranger Ray Burghardt more to come. Ray has a long history of making music in many celebrity settings as I do and what a joy to make music with him and “lock in”.
This recording was done a new mouthpiece just sent to me by Theo Waynne the “Ambika”. Having worked with Frank Sinatra , Tony Bennet , Mel Torme and Ella Fitzgerald , Joe Williams and many others that vintage and nuanced sound of Coleman Hawkins , Ben Webster , Gene Ammons and Stan Getz is very important to me. I would like to applaud Theo Waynne for his dedication and accomplishments and Bryan Vance General Manager for his incredible care and service. This beautiful arrangement is by my good friend Alan McPike in Scotland.
These singles were mixed by my good friend and master engineer and great guitar player by the way Ray Burghardt. Thank you Ray !
In 1964 I was 15 years old and went to the Randall’s Island Jazz Festival in NYC and saw Ahmad Jamal play his hit of the day Poinciana.
Great song written by Johnny Green done by many from the movie. Beautiful arrangement by my good friend Alan Mcpike in Scotland a joy to play.
Beautiful song inspired by Romero and Pamela’s daughter Luisa.

It was so heartwarming getting this comment from Alan Bergman who wrote the lyrics to the great song by Michel Legrand. “What a wonderful rendition of the song. It is great to hear a jazz sax player with feeling. He has a great sound”
It is so great collaborating with great Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo and his wonderful wife and beautiful singer Pamela Driggs on this great Chick Corea classic.
