Very happy to share that I played bari saxophone (and clarinet, unseen) in this LG USA Mobile X HitRECord commercial, “Everyday, Spectacular”. It’s now airing on national broadcast television! What a blast to shoot and collaborate with the always amazing and supportive HitRECord community.
I had a great time playing with The New York Jazzharmonic, and premiering Ron Wasserman’s “The Four Season’s of New York Jazz”.
Here is a really thoughtful article on a Jonny Rodgers, a fantastic singer/songwriter/composer that I had the opportunity to record for. The article discusses making music with wine glasses, water, and his upcoming album, “All A Shimmer”. I feel privileged to have had the chance to work with Jonny on his album. More on that in the article below. 🙂 [Click Picture.]

Contributing music to Season 1 of HitRECord on TV was a fun ride. But getting my beautiful grandmother involved was even more memorable. I couldn’t get a picture with her today, but below is a link to segment she was used in. Very excited and grateful to be a part of this #Emmy award.
Here’s to many more seasons, collaborations, inspiration and friendships.

A big thank you to SONY for coming on board as a sponsor of hitRECord and for providing 50 of their brand new Music Video Recorders to members of our community to help shoot this video.
