The original project description read as follows

The goal of this project is not to just sell you the printed music, but to give you something much more extensive – a “virtual clinic” with me and my band. Each piece is accompanied by video of my musicians talking about their approach to playing the music. I’ve included video of me discussing rehearsal of the music. And for music that came from our last few recordings, we’ve specially mixed versions for you and your musicians without solos for their practice. Some of the newer pieces have even been mixed without drums or bass part so that your players can practice with my band. I’ve tried to offer every possible tool for your use and pleasure.

The easier-to-play pieces that were written for younger bands, and that were never recorded on my band’s CDs, were separately recorded at a rehearsal by my band so that your students can have a reference performance to listen to and use as a reference.

You are always welcome to pass on questions to me.  I hope you’ll enjoy all that we are offering.
