I am grateful beyond words! Through the generous donations of 91 people, this gofundme campaign raised $6320 by the March 1st deadline. This exceeded our goal of $6000 to pay for the musicians of Burning Bridge, rehearsal studio rentals and transportation costs to record my composition, Blood. The additional funds will be applied to the CD mastering. Though the campaign is officially over, I am leaving the GoFundMe site for donations to help with the CD mastering and production costs. Burning Bridge GoFundMe Campaign.
The recording sessions took place March 11 and 12 at Kaleidoscope Sound in Union City, NJ. I am thrilled with our performance! So blessed to be working with outstanding musicians. Thanks Joseph Daley(tuba), Andrew Drury (drum set), Ken Filiano (string bass) Steve Swell (trombone), Sun Li (pipa), Taylor Ho Bynum (cornet/flugelhorn) and Wang Guowei (erhu)!
