the Fire - In the early 1990’s I formed an 8-piece Latin Jazz band
called Heart & Fire. The band performed numerous concerts in the New
England area during that time. In 1993 we were invited to perform in Russia
for a 10-day concert tour. We performed in Moscow, Nizinovgorod and St.Pertersburg.
We were one of the first American bands to play for Russian audiences.
We performed for standing room only audiences and experienced what it
had to have been like for the Beatles when they came to America. There
were many moments when we were looking our one time enemy in the eyes,
and out of mutual respect knew we were expected to down a shot of Russian
Vodka in one gulp. When we returned to the States, we recorded an album
of the music we performed on the tour titled “Chase The Fire”.
Even when I listen to it now, years later, it still sounds fresh, like
it was recorded yesterday.
Born on The Road - During the late 1970’s and into the 1980’s I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead my own 15 piece big band known as The Big Band Express. The musicians consisted of Berklee faculty, students and musicians from the Boston area that I worked with professionally. Most of the band members were alumni of the Buddy Rich, Woody Herman and Maynard Ferguson bands.
