Hey all – long summer, what with the new staff member and all. Glad to say we are back and boy have we been busy. First off, Jim’s latest project is ready to roll. It is probably being printed as I write this – the disc is his third quartet offering, featuring the regulars Chris and Rubim, with the added bonus of Dana Hall on drums – and it was well worth the wait – I can’t say more but check back soon to preview some cuts. And for some other great news – we have a new member to our collective – he has played on all our projects and we can finally make it official and include him in our family – Rubim de Toledo’s next project will be hosted on Death Defying Records – featuring Trumpet phenom and all around great guy Sean Jones! cb
