Herbert a film short has finally come into being. I wrote this piece over 23 years ago while I was a teacher at Lafayette High School In Bensonhurst, Brooklyn in 1998.
Not sure why it has taken me so long, but this past summer I assembled an amazing crew of like minded musical travelers who joined me for an incredible recording session.
Later in September we re-assembled to make a movie thanks to the talented film maker (and incredible drummer) Joe Musacchia.
The film is a wild ride and hard to describe, but feel free to subscribe, like the video and leave a comment.
Featured on the recording and film are:
Kit Demos double bass, Joe Musacchia drums, Russ Gershon baritone sax, Wesley Thomas vocals, Peter Cassino piano and yours truly on bass clarinet.

Brand new recording released in December, 2021 fitting for the new year. I hear serenity, a bit of hope and the deep kinds of sound textures you can expect from composer and didgeridoo champion David Brown. The recording also features: Conor Dowling: bass, electric guitar, synthesis, musique concrète. Todd Brunel on clarinet and bass clarinet.

I'm mainly a clarinetist and sax player who loves to compose, produce concerts and director ensembles. I specialize in performances for all occasions and working with young artists who are looking to create an amazing musical experience together.
I believe that music has no boundaries.

Thanks to my relationship with Conn-Selmer, workshops and clinics are powerful opportunities for student growth and enthusiasm. I proudly endorse the Selmer Paris bass clarinet, Selmer Seles Presence clarinet and the Super Action Series II tenor saxophone.
