In the summer of 2008 I was privileged to travel to Lima, Peru, and perform several concerts organized by Gabriel Morales-Bermudez, one of my GWU students. Gabriel recruited some of Peru's best jazz musicians and we played a mix of standards and my originals. It was a great pleasure and an honor to work with the remarkable cats heard on this recording: Javier Perez-Saco (piano), Percy Stanbury (bass), Alex Sarrin (drums), Jimi Infante (guitar), and my man Gabriel (alto). We performed at two wonderful clubs, Satchmo Cafe and the Jazz Zone, both in the Miraflores district. The audience and the staff at each venue couldn't have been more welcoming. It is truly a thrill to visit other countries and find both musicians and fans who are as deep into the music as anyone back home!

The tracks on this CD are from the concert on August 9th at the Jazz Zone. They were recorded directly from the board mix and except for a couple of isolated spots, the balance is quite good and the sound quality excellent. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did playing it!
