After a somewhat prolonged incubation, the next installment to the Andy Milne & Dapp Theory family has arrived. “Forward in All Directions” came into the world (via UPS) on July 2nd and is a healthy, eager 1.60 oz, full grown release. Kickstarter backers will receive their pre-release copies in the mail this week. The official international release is on September 9th. (internationally through Whirlwind Recordings & in the US through Contrology Records) The CD features guest performances from Ben Monder, Jean Baylor and Gretchen Parlato, and was produced by Grammy Award winnter, Jimmy Haslip. Chris Tordini, Kenny Grohowski, Aaron Kruziki and John Moon round out the core group. Thank you to everyone who played a part.

I just wrapped up 3 amazing days participating in the Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute at Columbia University. What a learning experience!!! My new composition for orchestra, “Element of Surprise” was performed by American Composers Orchestra in a public reading in front of over 400 people, including many distinguished musician/composers. What a thrill!!!!
