I owe a debt of thanks for this honor to all who had a part in the recording and production of this track on my 2011 debut album Mulberry Street: especially the 17 wonderful musicians of Project Hansori who really earned this, producer Darcy Argue and assistant John Guari, Paul Wickliffe of Skyline Pro Studios, and BJU Records. This news comes among a series of doors opening for me and I thank my Creator (couldn’t find an internet
link), for allowing all this.
Adding to the honor is having the IMA Jazz judging panel lend their ears to this track, including heavyweights McCoy Tyner, Arturo Sandoval, John Medeski, and Chris Wood. I haven’t seen word of an announcement date for the winners, but assume this will be sometime soon after July 19. Stay tuned and, if you please, vote! Thanks, JF
