Joined by Mark Inouye, Principal Trumpeter of the San Francisco Symphony, Mario Guarneri, Professor of Trumpet of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Erik Jekabson, Mike Olmos, and Doug Morton, their 2008 recording 'Torsion' explores a wide range of expression, juxtaposing jazz with virtuosic trumpet sounds of renaissance music, Beethoven, and early 20th century American pop music.
