Dear Bill,
I'd like to give you an update on my Billie Holiday concert project. I'm just back from VA where I recorded the album, and I'm very pleased with the result! The record will come out on the Steinway & Sons label in March 2015 in time for Lady Day's centenary in April. 

You can read about my personal artistic vision for the project here

And here are some video clips from the recent World Premiere at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.
