Since finishing the pieces from my current EP, I have been working on a new piece outside of my comfort zone. It started as rough sketches and a chord chart, but I was stuck at further production attempts. I tried a few iterations, all unsatisfying. I ran the piece by a musician friend who suggested looking outside the box. After further dialog, it evolved into a Latin-influenced jazz fusion arrangement.

Here is “She Looked Back”. It’s a collaboration between myself and Adam Holzman (Miles Davis, Steven Wilson), and features a couple of other players who requested anonymity (their call). It was primarily recorded in my studio (Siri’s Little Corner) and Adam’s Secret Laboratory NYC. I mixed it, and it was mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Sean Magee.
