The leader of this band has carved a successful career as one of the few bassoonists in the world that can play convincing jazz on his instrument. He performed, last summer, at the Bud Shank Jazz Festival in Washington State and went on tour throughout Pennsylvania last fall with his band, performing music from their recent CD release. This New York Jazz Band also performed last year at The Trinity Church Noontime Concert Series.

    “Epitaph” turns out to be a perfect title since it defines Mingus as an original synthesis of the past, present and future of music …. There are solo opportunities for strangers to jazz like the oboe and bassoon….” – Richard S. Ginell of Variety M

    “If you appreciate jazz but don’t know what a bassoon is, this album will blow you away. I am a professional bassoonist…Oregon Symphony and Bassoon Brothers Quartet…and Michael is one of the most amazing bassoonists I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. His arrangements are terrific and if you are a jazz enthusiast, you will truly enjoy this recording. It deserves six stars!” – Robert W Naglee- Customer Review of Bassoon on Fire, Amazon.com
