New Album Pre-Sale

‘i had a dream about amnesia’ presents two suites of new music, composed and recorded during the Covid-19 quarantine; you can find it here.

‘Five Memos from the New Millennium (for Lee Konitz)’ is a series of 5 pieces composed for soloists and duos to perform at home during lockdown. The suite is dedicated to the recently deceased alto saxophone giant, with a side of inspiration (and title/conceptual help) from Italo Calvino’s similarly titled lecture series. I was honored to write these pieces for some of my favorite collaborators and musicians: Sam Bevan, Mark Clifford, John Finkbeiner, Kasey Knudsen, Lisa Mezzacappa, Beth Schenck, and Cory Wright.

The second half of ‘i had a dream about amnesia’ presents a suite of moody pieces for trio, composed on plague themes, and premiered as part of the online festival, Unsolitary Music Series (produced by the crucial Karl Evangelista). The trio consists of Jordan Glenn, Cory Wright, and me, and we were recorded live in the studio by the great Myles Boisen.
The album also includes original artwork by my longtime collaborator Kim Miskowicz. I hope that you’ll consider ordering the album — available in CD and digital formats. Two tracks are available now and the full album will be released on January 21st.

Thanks for reading.
