CMCD Chuck Mangione: Everything for Love

I played keyboards on this CD. We recorded in NYC after a week at the Blue Note.
Chuck and the band sounded great.

Mahogony Kevin Mahogany: 2 Pride & Joy

I have been friends with Kevin since we met in 2000.
Since then we've toured and recorded a good deal.

Ellington Duke Ellington Orchestra: Third Generation

I recorded this CD at Systems Two recording studios in Brooklyn. I got to record with some great musicians, Mark Gross on alto sax, Marty Morell on drums, Tommy James on piano and Barrie Lee Hall Jr - the last member of the band to have played with Duke himself.

jobim Brian Bromberg: In The Spirit Of Jobim

I wrote the orchestra arrangements and played piano on this CD. The biggest thrill for me was when Airto Moriera unexpectedly decided to sing "Corcovado" with my string arrangement. It is breath-taking.

Corcovado

Hauser Tim Hauser: Love Stories

I wrote string quartet arrangements for Tim's very romantic album.


The Manhattan Transfer

Xmas The Christmas Album

I wrote an acapella arrangement of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" for TMT. Since a studio orchestra was to be added to my vocal arrangement, Johnny Mandel needed to make some changes to my original vocal arrangement. He very respectfully asked me to come to his house to play through my chart. We've been friends since then.

I worked with Arif Mardin on this CD. He was a true gentleman and the man I model myself after as a producer.

Vibrate

TMTCBH Couldn't Be Hotter Telarc

I wrote the arrangement of "My Foolish Heart" for TMT on the occasion of Tony Bennett's induction into the Singer's Hall Of Fame. It is loosely based on the way Tony performed it with Bill Evans. I'm very proud of the fact that at the event Tony recognized my intention and went out of his way to congratulate me on it.

TMTSym The Symphony Sessions

For the past several years, I have written TMT's symphony arrangements. This recording features 6 of them. I recorded and conducted the City Of Prague Symphony. What a joy.

CD_CBGGSB_150 George Gershwin Songbook

Producing a Gershwin CD is a daunting task. It's hard not to feel like it's all been done before. With that said, I feel like we showed the variety and sincerity of Gershwin's music.
