New collection from Portland, Oregon: The Covid Blues

Covid restrictions have made it difficult for me to get together with other musicians. In March, 2022 I made these recordings of some jazz standards to the accompaniment of pre-recorded backing tracks. The backing tracks are by Jamie Aebersold.

Bonus track: Inner Peace. A short original composition for solo flute. The piece intends to evoke the quiet spirit of meditation.
