New Album – Best of Both Worlds / EU meets USA

Cover---Best-of-both-Worlds

This project which unites two worlds : Classical music and Jazz, originated during the 40th NFA Convention in Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas.

During the Jazz Flute Summit concert, Ali Ryerson and Peter Verhoyen played my music together for the first time with Jeff Davies (bass), Larry Aberman (drums) and myself on piano.

In a world where communication and exchange are the present and the future, this project wants to unite different musical genres and musicians, ignoring all traditional borders.
