Some notes to let you all know that music research and development is continuing, despite the current public health emergency, and relentless gloom-and-doom reports as to the alleged state of the music "industry".
Attitude: as a practicing musician, you make it work. You never allow others to determine your artistic outcomes in this complex field.
Ongoing studies of works by Isaac Albéniz are extremely useful, yielding insights as to avenues for further exploration.
I've recently collaborated with the Bay Area bassist / conductor Carl Herder on this remote project for small orchestra https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X055o5PtOF8&feature=youtu.be, and there may be more of these ahead.
I'm on standby for a possible New York debut of the "Sanctuary" session on terrestrial radio there; a broadcast first. Also, there's an essay pending at Jazz Tokyo https://jazztokyo.org/ that will likely be published early next year. Will keep you posted.
All good wishes for 2021,
