PRE-ORDER SAGEBRUSH REBELLION
For Immediate Download & Free Shipping
I'm delighted to announce that my new album Sagebrush Rebellion is now available for pre-order here.
The album will be officially released August 9 (to iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, radio and retail) on the BluePort Jazz/Papillon Recordings label. We're staging CD Release Celebration shows in key markets around the country this fall.
In the meantime, for my friends and fans who pre-order now: you'll immediately receive an advance digital download of all tracks, plus free shipping throughout the continental US as soon as the CD arrives from the factory.
The CD features a terrific west coast rhythm section—Nick Manson, Justin Grinnell and Duncan Moore—and a great mix of music, including some new originals, classics by Johnny Burke and Duke Ellington, and favorite songs by Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow and Nat Adderley.
Jim Merod, a close friend of my mentor Art Farmer and the director of BluePort Jazz, says, "This is one of my favorite recordings...I hope listeners enjoy the depth and delicacy of these songs crafted with Dmitri’s flugelhorn mastery."
I can't wait to hear what you think of our album. Here's the link.
Thanks for your continuing support!
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods?
I was honored to be among the musicians who participated: Ron Blake, Todd Coolman, Kenny Davis, Johnny Griffin, Jim Hall, Slide Hampton, Brian Lynch, Joe Magnarelli, Wynton Marsalis, Dmitri Matheny, Lewis Nash, Jimmy Owens, Carline Ray, Rufus Reid, Ted Rosenthal, Don Sickler, Pete LaRoca Sims, Billy Taylor, Michael Weiss, Frank Wess and Joe Wilder.
We miss you, Art.

willing to work for free. Sadly, most people
don’t see value in masterful free goods.
You must charge for your work...
it’s a gesture of value and respect."

This will gratify some people
