Waldron "Mahdi" Ricks - trumpet

Donald Nicks - electric bass guitar
Kenny Grohowski - drums
The Collective will be playing music from the upcoming CD "Spirit Driven".

This new edition of the collective is a very unique one, because every musician brings his "own"sound to the table, therefore transforming the musical process in to a "new sound". Nora's raw voice, her spirited poetry, lyrics, composition and delivery of the word is one of a kind, and transform my compositions lines in to an angelic sound. Waldron's sound and harmonic conception on the trumpet represents the color shifting in my arrangements. Pablo Vergara impressionistic voicing on the piano create the "Magic" behind the sound. Donald Nicks on the bass represents the soul of the compositions, and Kenny Grohowski orchestration of the written drum parts makes the magic swing in any type of meter, be it 5/4 or 9/4.

Looking Forward !!
