New video! My drum set adaptation of the Master Senegalese sabar drummer Doudou N'Diaye Rose's "Cheikh Anta Diop" from his 1994 album and DVD "Djabote," recorded on Gorée Island in 1991. Many thanks to Taylor Eigsti, Jason Moran, Marc Cary, and Tarus Mateen for hipping me to this incredible music and thanks to John Riley for pushing me to get this recorded! Hope you enjoy it!
Here is a video of the MSM Jazz Philharmonic Orchestra reading through my composition, Gleaning & Dreaming for the first time back in December. Conducted by Jim McNeely and soprano saxophone solo by Matt Woroshyl. My quintet recorded a version of this tune in the summer, which will be released in March on my new album, Dialectics. Enjoy!
