A Tribute to Nat and Canonball Adderley

The idea of doing a tribute to Nat and Canonball was a natural outgrowth of playing the tune "Work Song" on gigs and noticing that people responded to this song with enthusiasm. I asked Saxophonist Dave MacKenzie to join me and we shared the task of writing and putting together the book. Jazz fans love the gospel and blues sound of Adderley Soul Jazz.

Tribute to Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan 

The Valerie Gillespie Trio and I teamed up to create a quartet  and the cool West Coast sound of Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan. Jazz fans loved this tribute to Cool Jazz.

Jazz Trio and More
