In 2003 the North Star Jazz Ensemble was invited to perform at the Big Sisters of Rhode Island annual fundraising event and to record a souvenir CD of original music that would be given to attendees. For this first opportunity to record our own compositions, pianist Ron Fournier and I co-wrote a jazz-rock fusion original and titled it "Little Sister" in honor of the event. The track is also included on my 2018 album Summer Mood.
On this one I am playing tenor saxophone along with Ron Fournier (piano & co-writer), Marty Ballou (bass) & Paul Mason (drums). As with all of our North Star projects, it was recorded by our wonderful engineer Jack Gauthier at Lakewest Recording in West Greenwich, Rhode Island.
Sheet music for this composition is available at the Original Music page. This and all the North Star Jazz and CommonGround recordings can be found streaming on YouTube, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and all streaming platforms.
