I am currently in the process of mixing last 4 tracks out of the 10 with Mark Rubinstein at Ohio State’s recording studio. I am very pleased with how the record is turning out. Unfortunately the mixing and licensing process is very time consuming, but I promise it will be worth the wait. The release will be in mid August and we are planning to have release shows in Los Angeles, Buffalo, Rochester, New York, Cleveland, and Columbus. The compositions and the playing on the record have won a few awards this year- 2011 JEN Conference Young Jazz Composers Showcase (small group Fire Blossom), and a 2011 Downbeat Student Music Award for outstanding soloist.
The project is a combination of both the Rochester Jazz Star Recording session (december ’10) and a grant from OSU (which funded the september ’10 recording session). The upcoming release is starting to gain attention from some people on campus. The Journal of Undergraduate Research decided to make a feature article about my creative research the cover story. They asked me where I wanted to take the photo for the front cover and I wanted to make it somewhere that represented OSU: The Horseshoe. The resulting cover came out pretty epically with the stadium in the background…haha
