"A Dark and Stormy Day" by Alessandro Fadini now available everywhere!

I'm incredibly proud to announce that, at long last, "A Dark and Stormy Day" by Alessandro Fadini is available for streaming/purchase though all major online music retailers.  

I consider myself very honored to have been a part of this project.  These are some of the most incredible musicians I've worked with during my time in New York and Aleks is has become one of my closest friends and musical allies. 

Seems like just yesterday but believe it or not, we recording this album over the course of two days last summer. Below is the teaser video. After that, links for purchase and the Spotify play button! I urge you to purchase a physical copy, if possible.  A lot of hard work went into this album and it's a great way to repay a musician as dedicated to pushing the culture of jazz forward as Alessandro is.

Below is the Spotify play button. Enjoy!
