I've been a sideman for many years, playing with some of the well known and lesser known greats, but I've never released a cd of my own music. Until Blue Route Traveler ! This cd includes 7 of my own jazz compositions and 3 jazz standards. I'm dedicating this cd to my Dad, Jack Sappington, who was an adventurer, story teller, and the original Blue Route Traveler in my life.
Making this cd was a terrific experience, thanks to my fellow musicians: Mike Karn on bass; Matt King on piano, organ, melodica; Jason Tiemann on drums; and studio engineer Chris Sulit of Trading 8s Recording Studio.
