Thank you for your years of support. This is for you all. Recorded live in 2016 at the Goshen Fairgrounds, Goshen, CT during the annual Litchfield Jazz Festival, the set of all original music captures the full band with tons of special guests, including legendary guitarist, Paul Bollenback.
All live, no edits, no scripts. This album is dedicated to the fans. Without you, I would not exist. I would like to thank the Litchfield Jazz Festival, all the musicians, Vandoren, and RS Berkeley for the continued artist support and everyone who has listened and have come out to shows. #rememberwhen
