I am feverishly working on my new CD release entitled Flight of the Eagle. I have all the songs complete and am busy recording the final saxophone tracks and adding new piano tracks from my friend and gifted pianist Jojo Jose. It has been a blast to collaborate on many of the arrangements with Jojo too. I will soon be bringing in John Raymond to add some sparkling guitar tracks to complete the recording. Then it is off to the mixing studio of Grammy Award winner, and high school classmate, Garey Shelton to pull it all together by the end of the year. I will update you soon. - Alan
I remember my anticipation when Mr. Elnes, the 5th Grace band director, came to our classroom to recruit students for his program.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our celebration Monday night at Jazz Alley. It was an evening that surpassed my wildest dreams! It was truly awe inspiring and humbling to have 300+ of our friends, family, and greater community show up and support us.
