It was a great blessing to be able to produce this album of original jazz compositions. It was made possible through the support of my friends, family, and listeners. I truly enjoyed working with this world-class group of musicians, engineers, and visual artists. Each song represents a part of my daily spiritual journey through life as well as my faith in Christ. My hope is that this album will be a contemplative, beautiful experience that inspires deep thought about life, the world around us, and eternity.
My deepest gratitude goes out to you, the listener. Without you, I would not be able to share the joy of creating a piece of art that is very personal. Thank you for taking the time to allow me to share this music with you and I hope that you can enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed working on it.
