In late 2012 fellow Jivewire and member of the Funk Brothers Canadian horn section Brian Asselin produced an album with Funk Brother lead singer Delbert Nelson of Detroit. Brian put together a great group of Ottawa musicians and asked me to play the trombone in the band. The resulting recording is fantastic and I am very glad that Brian included one of my songs “Love Maze” along with his excellent original songs. I am very happy to be in this band and can’t wait to perform live as the recording is already being well received pre-release.
Reformed in 2016 as “The Commotions”, Brian Asselin has produced a fantastic album as a follow up to “Let Me See You Dance”! “The Commotions 11” features singers Rebecca Noel and Jeff Rogers with a line up of excellent musicians. I am once again very happy to be in this group and have placed two songs on the album, “Last Look” and “Come Clean”.
