This recording is the first part of a two day session I did in August of 2021 at Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, VA. The second day was released in June of 2022 under "Sun Song". I felt this session had a different vibe from Sun Song so I decided to split them and release each session separately. Featuring Taylor Barnett (trumpet & flugelhorn)

ABOUT

I am a freelance bassist, educator, composer and band leader who has been performing in and around the greater Tidewater area of Virginia since 1994. I earned my bachelors degree in Music Education from Old Dominion University in August 2000. I taught in the Virginia public school system as an orchestra director for thirteen years and as an adjunct jazz bass professor at William and Mary College and Christopher Newport University.

For over 20 years I have had the pleasure of being a member of the Virginia Symphony Jazz Orchestra, Roy Muth Big Band and Eddie Williams Quartet. You can also find me performing with my own ensembles, Left of Center, the Chris Brydge trio/ quartet, Liz Terrell Quartet and as part of the bass and voice duo Liz & Brydge.

Some of the people I have had the honor to share the stage and perform with are John Abercrombie, Joe Magnarelli, Steve Wilson, Joe Locke, Frank Foster, Byron Stripling, John Goldsby, Carmen Bradford, Karrin Allyson, Rene Marie, Dominique Eade, Melanie Charles, Alan Parker, Justin Kauflin, Daniel Clarke, John D’Earth, Taylor Barnett, John Toomey, Hod O’Brien, Woody Beckner, Laura Martier, Stephanie Nakasian, Harris Simon, Lorna Luft, Debbie Boone, Shirley Jones, Bernadette Peters and many other international jazz and pop artists.
