    Artist Comments

    I love to play all kinds of jazz. The album enclosed was recorded in June 07 so this is my very latest recording, with the well known bassist Ratzo Harris and the hot new drummer in NYC, Rudy Royston from Denver. Check us out! Extended older audio samples are at LewisPorter.com
