Balance is a celebration of experiences, styles and friendships. Adam, Byron, and I had been working on a project, and from that i realized that we should do our own project–something for us–no holds barred–create something special!

As the concept developed, it was obvious to have it represent broad strokes of our numerous and varied experiences. and building on our own personal friendship, it would be great to bring in our circle of friends and colleagues whom we have done so much with during our individual careers. Jazz, studio, and orchestral experiences abound with the music moving from the jazz group to the chamber ensemble and back.
