    Hey cats. I wanted to let you know about a new project I'm in. It is called Shawn Maxwell's Alliance. Shawn is a alto player/bandleader/composer here in Chicago. He has assembled a group of his friends and wrote for the group. Really interesting music. The instrumentation is alto sax, soprano sax, vibes, guitar, voice, 2 french horns, 2 double basses, and drums. We are releasing a record on the Chicago Sessions label in the middle of Feb and doing a cd release the the legendary Jazz Showcase Feb 20-23. Here are a couple of promo videos. Enjoy.

    I like the sounds that I'm hearing from the intro videos. Looks like a fun project!

    The music business is so unreadable these days, but I like this approach.

    Thanks. I think the plan here is to make fiercely original music. If someone likes it all the better.

    I'm giving this thread a bump. For anyone in the Chicago area a group I play with, Shawn Maxwell's Alliance, will be releasing our debut cd next weekend Feb 20-23 at the Jazz Showcase. This cd has gotten some very nice press including an editors pick in the Downbeat e-blast. I'm very proud to be a part of this and if you are in the area I think you'd enjoy it.
