"The recording with Olivier Legoas, presents music of a highly personal nature.
Using early music for improvisation was something i would have not have thought of.
It's too bad i did'nt think of it, as it's a great idea!
Playing in this intimate quartet with Olivier, Drew Gress, and Ralph Alessi, was Big Fun.
I've always wanted to play in a quartet with trumpet,bass, and drums, so this was a great opportunity for me.The music reminds me in some ways of the Art Farmer Quartet with Jim Hall, which as a young musician in the 1960's, was my favorite band, and had a big influnence on my own way of playing.
I hope that everyone has as much pleasure listening to this recording as i had in doing it!"
