I am pleased to announce that the film Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story has premiered at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival.  I am the composer of the score (this is my first film score), and I’m also the leader and pianist of the “orchestra” (a jazz combo).  This documentary is about the life of the late alto saxophonist Frank Morgan.  More info here.

The official trailer for Sound of Redemption may be viewed here.

My album A Bigger Celebration (2013) and its live companion album A Live Celebration: Kobe, Japan (2014) are available now on my website and on iTunes.
