Tito Puente Masterworks!

Hello all,

First of all, let me apologize for not being around as much these days, working on some new projects that you will find out about very soon. But here is what i can tell you:

I will be doing many concerts this year in tribute to the late great Dr. Billy Taylor, whom you know passed away some time ago. I will let you all know the dates on where and when I will be playing.

I've recorded a live album a few years ago with Afro-Cuban Percussionist, Bobby Sanabria, Machito's "Kenya (Revisited)". We also did a tribute concert to Tito Puente the year after, which will be released on March 8... Please keep a look out for it.

PEACE.LOVE.MUSIC

RIP Dr. Billy Taylor

As many of you know,

My mentor and great friend Dr. Billy Taylor has passed on to the other side. Dr. Taylor has been the most gracious and generous person to me and i've cherished every moment i've had with him. His legacy will live on forever as music does. Keep him in your hearts just as he did for many of us, and remember to love everyone and tell them so.

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness." ~John Keats

Little Running Cloud

It's finally here...

A little while ago i was writing a children's story with my mother and it has finally finished and is in print... The story is about a young Native American boy named Little Running Cloud and his journey of finding his animal spirit. I'll post where to get it soon. It is an early reading book, full of illustrations also done by myself. I hope you enjoy, "Little Running Cloud."

New Recording

Hello everyone,

Sorry i haven't been around lately. I've been busy with a new product, my 4th album. About the album, it contains some old standards: Four, Little B's Poem to name a few, and some originals you may've heard me play around in clubs. On this album, i wanted to use some of my friends that i've met along this journey called music: Randy Brecker, Ugonna Okegwo, Louis Hayes, and Craig Handy. There's no title for this album as of yet, but there will be soon. There'll be more posts later.
