As some of my fans may or may not know I have been out of the music scene for a few months due to an emergency open heart operation that I had back in April of this year. It was a long rehabilitation for me which I am still under-going but I will be performing with my group for the first time since then. We will be featuring the music and compositions of Joe Zawinul, Ornette Coleman, Horace Silver, Kenny Martin and from myself. I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends and fans. It promises to be a very musical and enjoyable evening and you don't want to miss this concert presented by 5 of the "Greatest Unknowns Ever Known"
