This project celebrates the migration of the sound that travel from the Texas to Chicago. This sound became know as avant- guard or free jazz. Although these compositions highlight people or episodes in life that inspired me, they are also based on concepts that I hear or have been working on. I dedicate this project specifically to John Carter and Bobby Bradford for whom were pioneers of this approach.

John Carter and Ornette Coleman went to I.M. Terrell highschool together back in the 40’s It was Ornette who encouraged Carter and Bradford to form a group. The John Carter / Bobby Bradford Qaurtet. This is my tribute to that qaurtet and the sound and style that they expressed. The openness and orchestration of this group allows one to explore and investigate in an unrestricted manner as if one were free. Free as if the only requirement of oneself is to listen then respond. Which takes us back to musics truest form. “Call and Response”.
