The journey has begun – global female jazz musicians are taking the lead in “The Whole World in Her Hands”.  The project includes recordings, a documentary, a song bportraits_675_RTook, and more.  It’s a privilege to collaborate with these fantastic musicians  – can you name them?

Initial recording sessions at Avatar Studios in New York took place this summer (with Wynton Marsalis recording next door) and the music is incredible.  All sessions were also videotaped for a documentary of the process.  Please join me on this journey – next stop: mixing sessions and crowdfunding campaign starting October 6 – watch for info on how to join the journey very soon.
