Product Notes

"It (The Super Villain Jazz Band) heralds the arrival of a new major voice in jazz, one whose name belongs in the pantheon of it's true heroes." - Russ Musto, New York Jazz Record My music reflects all my interests in music and life. A song may draw influence from Woody Shaw, Stravinsky, Van Gogh, an old spiritual, a pop diva, and a geometric shape. Every tune and performance is a little puzzle to be organized and interpreted. Sometimes the inspiration is humor (The Yankee Poured Out the Bacon Grease), or a hypothetical story where a machine becomes self-aware (The Hadron Collider). Sometimes it hinges on a hook and the question 'Can we make that work?' (a cover of Britney Spears' Toxic with a tone row break). I'm a professor of music at Coastal Carolina University. I teach traditional trumpet, jazz ensembles, improvisation, and recording technology. For three years, I lived and worked in Nashville as a Freelance Musician. I was lucky to record and perform with some diverse people, including: Rihanna, The Mavericks, The Nashville Jazz Orchestra, Brad Paisley, Brian Setzer, Bob Mintzer, and Wycliffe Gordon. My doctoral dissertation was on 'Visualization and improvisation.' I interviewed three prominent trumpet players who experience visual elements while improvising. Often times when I improvise, I see abstract shapes and I'll reorganize and shape them musically. I continue to write about visualization and other musical topics on my blog. I'm currently involved in a project that records and documents the old spirituals of the Gullah people on St. Helena Island, SC. Currently, this project is being developed by interested students in a variety of disciplines to make an interactive app - celebrating and educating people on the rich history of the Gullah People. The Super Villain Jazz Band was recorded in the summer of 2012 between tour dates (i was on the road with The Mavericks) in the historic Castle Studios. It features my favorite musicians and friends I developed during my time in Nashville.
