CD Releases: Current & Upcoming

“INNERrOUTe“, the Free-Improv band consisting of Rick Savage on trumpet/flugelhorn, myself on keyboard, Bill McCrossen on bass and Michael D’Agostino on drums, has a new release, our 2nd CD, FOURMATION. We’re now the on Planet Arts label (PA301554). Not setting any prerequisite boundaries for our improvisations, and drawing on our collective musical experience, deeply listening to one another, we collectively create each compositional journey. Look for the CD in digital and physical versions in all the standard outlets.
