Where To Buy...

All CD's may be purchased for immediate shipment to you from our current distributor, CD Baby


Since this, being my first live recording as a leader I have a very special feeling about this CD. It's with a band that I'm very proud of their input.

Michael Cochrane on piano, David Williams on bass, & Steve Johns on drums. We played originals of mine that I had the pleasure of recording in the past.

Hope you'll enjoy the new twist on some of them. Thank you, Sonny Fortune

This trio of CDs in the "Trilogy Collection" are, first, recordings I am very proud of. They are CDs that I feel are my best recordings (along with my "Continuum" CD) I've done up to now. They have great players on all of them as well as great music.(read more on CD baby)
