Featuring arrangements of music by Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Jelly Roll Morton, as well as Sommer originals and a whole lot of swinging and stomping.
I am very happy to announce the release of my new project, Narrando Historias, featuring Ron Miles (cornet), Eric Gunnison (piano), Kent McLagan (bass) and Alwyn Robinson (drums). The music is mostly original compositions by myself and is inspired by literature (Rainer Maria Rilke and Jack Kerouac), history and culture (ancient Mayan civilization) and odds and ends from family life (board games and listening to Jimi Hendrix in the car with my boys). We also play nifty arrangements of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and one of Art Lande's beautiful Penances. The band sounds great and I'm very happy with how the production turned out.
Narrando Historias is now available for purchase at CD Baby, and is available for download at iTunes and Amazon.
