Here are 9 never-before-released studio recordings from a pair of sessions in 2008 (jazz sextet) and 2010 (big band). 

On the three sextet tracks you can hear young lions Billy Test, Aaron Kimmel, and Greg Johnson just as they were on the cusp of breaking through to national recognition. This was a working band so it was tight!

On the six big band tracks you can hear an all-star consort that includes pianist Steve Rudolph, trumpeters Eddie Severn and Barry Long, trombonist Paul Leskowicz, and saxophonists Jonathan Ragonese and Tim Powell.

You can purchase individual tracks or the entire collection in high-quality downloads.
