catch up on previous releases you may have missed - including Alan Blackman's "The Coastal Suite," (made possible by Chamber Music America & The Doris Duke Foundation) featuring saxophonist Donny McCaslin & percussionist Rogerio Boccato. Or our first release "Turning Point," also with Donny McCaslin. Please visit our website for samples and ordering information .
Max joined forces with saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk, drummer Frank Russo and guitarist Donato Soviero. This band was a blast! Their Summit Records CD, The Blind Watchmaker is still available - just click here to order. Check our website for additional information.

The new CD, Vocal Madness, is getting tons of airlplay, spent over 6 weeks on Jazz Week's "Top 50" chart, and was considered as a Grammy Nominee! It features alto sax legend, Richie Cole. I'm proud of this group! Click here to learn more about UVJQ, see some videos, and order CDs.
As you well know, thanks to COVID-19, most of the world is closed, and that includes theatres & concert halls. Just prior to the pandemic outbreak, I had the good fortune to be part of the world premier of "Gun & Powder" @ Signature Theatre. Things were just gearing up to launch another premier, when seasons everywhere were canceled. Hopefully "Camille Claudel" will make its way to next season's calendar! Here is a clip of the promo video we recorded just days prior to everything closing.
At the moment, the plan is to join the production of "Hair" in July, and time will tell whether we have a green light....
One thing I have learned during this plague - the show does not always go on!
