Leading with his distinctively warm and emotional trumpet/flugelhorn work, C M blends Latin, R&B and New Age flavors into a unique smooth jazz stew which satisfies the soul and the mind. With roots as a classically trained trumpet and French horn player, C M''s musical vocabulary has evolved over the last 25 years to encompass many different genres, all contributing to his unique jazz style. After playing with Willie Ruff and the Yale Jazz Ensemble, as well as the Yale Symphonic Band, C M was an active musician in NYC during the 80''s, playing trumpet in a Brooklyn Calypso band, writing and recording many songs, and leading his own band. After a hiatus from music, he resumed composing and recording again in mid-2000.
Lucidity (October 2002) is the fruit of C M''s collaborations with musicians from Canada, Europe and the US during 2002. These 11 tracks feature performances and/or compositions from Bob Johnson, Jeza, Bob Gaynor, Lord Bygon, Kim Novak, Bill Farrish, Steve Arms and Q a e. As always, C M serves up a diverse and original combination of musical styles, all tied together by his warm and soulful trumpet & flugelhorn.
In September 2001, CM released Into Wishin'', a showcase of CM''s songwriting skill. The album features 4 guest vocalists, who sing a total of 7 songs ranging in style from sultry R&B ballad and atmospheric New Age/pop to smooth jazz and world/rock. 3 more instrumental tracks on the album continue the classic CM sound established on his first album.
C M''s first CD, Bridges In The Sky, was released in February 2001 through https://www.tradebit.com. It established his signature sound: smooth jazzy trumpet & flugelhorn over original and creative instrumental compositions with a variety of mixed musical flavors (New Age, Latin, funky R&B, etc).
