Jazz Behind Bars

Lawless Percussion - Jazz Behind Bars

The Vision

I have long had a dream of putting together a group of seasoned professional percussionists to play original jazz music. I have been blessed with some wonderful friends who have agreed to share that dream with me. Each member has composed two original jazz pieces to be performed on percussion instruments only. In July of 2006, we met in Boulder, Colorado for an intense week of rehearsals and recording, resulting in a 10 song CD, Jazz Behind Bars, that was released in the fall of 2006.

The Posse

Take 5 top gun percussionists with a love for jazz and a talent for writing music. Arm them with an assortment of vibraphones, marimbas, drums, and other percussion devices ... the result is so good, there oughta be a law ... LAWLESS PERCUSSION AND JAZZ.
