ARDNAVE (featuring Mike Stever, trumpet; Randy Gloss & Chris Payne, percussion; Phil O’Connor, clarinet) is built around a strong Scottish sounding melody that just popped into my head shortly after my honeymoon in Scotland. As I wrote it down, I was transported back to the northern coast of Islay where Erin and I spent an afternoon walking among sheep to an empty beach.

"Orenda Records is a small Southern California label that punches above its weight... Orenda’s offerings are informed by rock, modern classical, and jazz, and combine these genres in a natural, organic fashion... Orenda’s musicians grew up in a post-Braxton era where musical styles are viewed on a continuum rather than as individual silos of expression."
