It's been almost 4 years since my last record, Three Rivers, was released.  I was very proud of that record as it was a homage to my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and had some really cool musicians on it.  Thanks to all who supported that record and my live performances.  During the release of that record I spent a five-year tenure with Chris Botti, which was pretty awesome, but I was not able to tour with my own band as much as I would have liked to.  My tenure with Botti ended in March 2017 and since then I have been focused on my own project.  I changed the band's name from "Nuclear Fusion" to "The Goods Project" and I'm currently working on a very special record which I hope to release in the spring of 2019.  This record will feature the music of one of my mentors and friend, the great Mulgrew Miller.  Mulgrew is probably the most important figure in the success and development of my music career.  I spent nine years playing in Mulgrew's band right after I graduated from Berklee College of Music.  I learned so much from Mulgrew and that was the band where I really got a chance to make a name for myself.  Mulgrew passed away in 2013 but remains one of the most influential jazz pianists of our time.  He is also one of the most prolific composers of jazz music.  On this next CD I will keep things funky and groovin' and at the same time incorporate more acoustic instruments, including a lot of acoustic bass.  I do not have the support of a record label so I am asking all my friends, family and fans to help me fund this amazing project by donating to my "gofundme" campaign.  This will give me the freedom to record my vision of Mulgrew Miller's music and present it to the public exactly as I envision it.  There are many costs involved in releasing a record, including studio time, musician fees, PR and media campaign expenses, radio promotions, record pressing, etc., and for many professional musicians campaigns like this one are a primary source of funding.   I am looking to raise $20,000.  After the project is finished I will be touring extensively with The Goods Project to promote the record.  Any amount you donate really helps.  $20 will help, and if you add a few 00s it will help a bit more!  I'll keep you updated on how the project is going.  Thank you so much for your support.
