The EP Sessions : EP means 'extended play' and usually falls between the length of a single, and the length of a full album.

We recorded this EP in Brooklyn, New York one snowy December afternoon in 2009. My long distance love affair with Manhattan had begun years earlier, and I was so happy to be there again, and this time recording with my friends Dan and Tal, and of course with wonderful Art Hirahara at the piano.

With a rhythm section like this the session itself flew by, but the memory, and this EP, will remain forever and always be very special to me. These early experiences in my career had a lasting effect on my development and for that I'm incredibly grateful. I love this EP and the time we spent putting it together.

I would like to extend my thanks to Ben Taylor for his generosity and friendship, MB, Michael, Dan, Tal, Art and a special thank you to Hoang Minh Thuy.

Always dedicated to the memory of Shaka Taylor and Bill Peden, a talented man.
