A sweet one inspired by children. Rare.

About the Album

Right before Christmas in 2014, two police officers were murdered in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn. It's close to my neighborhood and I used to go to the area for jam sessions. If you know the context since the Eric Garner incident, you know how bad this Bed-Stuy thing was. I was thinking to write a lament for that, but I changed my mind and wrote a lullaby for the children of the victims and children in the neighborhood. "Bed-Stuy Lullaby" is a relaxed rock tune with Latin touches played in 13 beats.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
