What It Is (2007)

Release Date: Sep 1, 2007

Label: ephi Records

What It Is was born from several Spring 2007 sessions as preparation for a solo gig scheduled for early summer. This new work is primarily first takes, which preserves the spontaneity which is usually only found in live performances. The thirteen tracks are an energetic mixture of originals and standards with the selections grounded in both improvisational excitement and the desire to take risks to embrace the feeling which only comes when the artist embraces what it is and makes the moment their own.
