The Dream Keeper


Excited that after a long time, this record has been finally released on Mode Records. I've been lucky enough to be involved with many of the musicians on the album for greater than a decade, working with live, improvised jazz and poetry, led by my friend and fabulous guitarist Larry Simon. 

I've also been blessed to share the stage with David Amram on more than one occasion and having the opportunity to record an album with him was a rich and memorable experience. And of course the powerful and dynamic performance of Eric Mingus begs to be heard, as he renders Langston Hughes' poetry masterfully. Langston Hughes' poetry remains crucial and timely as ever, and I'm happy I was able to sprinkle some percussion around it.
