My latest recording “Lonely Girl – I Remember Julie” with guitarist Andy Brown has been receiving accolades in jazz periodicals including 4 stars in DownBeat Magazine and a profile in the Chicago Tribune as well as interviews on radio including NPR’s Jazz Inspired! This CD is a tribute to the legendary vocalist Julie London and her groundbreaking collaboration with guitarist Al Viola. It was first released in Japan in 2021 on the Japanese label Muzak, and was re-released here in 2022.
