Well, this fall I’ve been tossing ideas back and forth with the illustrious trumpeter Tim Jones, from my old stomping ground in Denver, CO. Tim plays with the Colorado Jazz Workshop and gigs locally with a variety of big band groups in the Denver metro area. We thought we’d try messing his trumpet skills with my electronics and see what happened. We came up with Metanioa, meaning a change of heart.
As you know all of my music is an autobiography of my life. This is no different. I have had numerous changes of the heart in the past two years since I released my last album, and on a variety of subjects. I’ve thought of leaving music all together too. But alas, it draws me back in and so I’m still here. Silent most of the time, but the silence has to learn how to be played as well, we musicians know that.
