My Blues For Lester Recording Project is a collaboration with David Arivett. David created a demo recording of my Blues For Lester score for mid-size jazz ensemble in 2014. The project video enables one to follow the pages of my score while listening to the recording. The demo gives one an idea of how the score is meant to sound. However, all of the instrument tracks were created electronically (including the drums).

David and I are in agreement that having a real drummer will greatly help to bring this music to life -- in particular, in the series of drum solos in the score. Additionally, I experimented with a violin as the soloist on the demo recording; however, I now think that it would work better to use a trumpet. We believe that adding the new tracks and remixing the recording are worth the $500 cost of the project.   

For this project, a trumpet player (soloist) and drummer will record live tracks from my Blues For Lester score. These tracks will be mixed with the woodwind quintet tracks (parts I-V) from the demo recording. Using a real trumpet player and drummer will result in a higher quality and much more exciting recording of this music.
