A new recording from Eric Plaks
Eric Plaks is an adventurous pianist in NYC and I have been very fortunate to spend a lot of time playing with him in the last few years. As part of the Shrine Big Band, as well as many different smaller configurations, Eric always puts together excellent musical situations and fresh writing.
Recently we went into the studio in Brooklyn to record an album and I am very pleased with the results. The album features Eric's compositions, which he defines as 'Themes' as we generally start with the theme and improvise in and out of the composition. The album is titled "Chrysalis" and is being released by the OutNow record label.
I am very much looking forward to the album release performances scheduled for this fall.
