I'm very excited to let you know that I've recorded a fantastic new CD of big band charts of Pepper Adams compositions for Motema Music. This is the sixth CD in my series, and it's the first recording of its kind ever undertaken. It will be released in January, 2014. It wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for the esteemed British arranger Tony Faulkner, who wrote all the charts. Faulkner is little known outside of England, but this project should change that in a hurry.
Ten superb performances that were done over Easter weekend by the Concert Jazz Band at the University of Illinois, with solos by their superb faculty. I need to raise $7,000 to pay the arranger for all his great work, to pay the engineer to mix and master the date, and to pay for Faulkner's flight to the US so we can promote this great music with concerts, lectures, and radio shows throughout the US and Canada.
Please use one of these urls and donate whatever you can. No donation is too small and all is very much appreciated! For your generosity, some great gifts await you! You'll see them at my Kickstarter page.

This is a 30-day sprint, so please spread the word. I'm looking forward to sharing this music with you. Long live Pepper Adams!
