From Graham Collier, a new book and a double CD (samples available).
The comment by Gill Fisher, a friend of a friend who attended the 2004 concert, that I was directing 14 Jackson Pollocks is a concise and aware description of how I see my role as a jazz composer: to work with a group of brilliant musicians to create something which, while respecting what is written, changes from performance to performance as all good jazz should. This concept is the philosophical core of my new book the jazz composer, moving music off the paper, published simultaneously with this album by Northway Books.
