Welcome to my Home Page!
Tomorrow Joe Fonda and I fly to Budapest to perform at the MediaWave Festival with our "Eastern Boundary Quartet". I will return home to Black Mountain, NC on Sunday, May 3 and will mostly remain in the area until October when I go back to Europe with the Generations Quartet featuring Oliver Lake. I plan to focus on my composing for the next several months and am hoping to start a Composer's Big Band here in the Asheville, NC area. Look for an upcoming solo piano CD of mostly standards which will be released this Summer. Thanks for your continued support of my music. I would not be able to sustain my musical life without your support.
Several new cd releases:
1. Folk Five on ForTune Records (Poland) featuring the Fonda/Stevens Group and Polish saxophonist Irek Wojtczak. This is a recording of traditional Polish folk songs arranged for modern jazz quintet.
2. Mountain Song on Artists Recording Collective. This is a duo cd featuring my original compositions performed by myself and the great bassist Eliot Wadopian.
Feel free to send a tweet or just write and say hello. Thanks for your support.
