Synopsis

Product Description
In 1996 the owner of the now defunct 'Radio Valencia' was booking Jim's group into his San Francisco eating place and asked me the name of my band. He said, "ah, er . . . forward motion . . . no . . . Forward Energy", and that's been it for the past 10 years through many player configurations and gigs in the S.F. bay area, up and down the West Coast, Chicago & NYC. His free jazz apprenticeship began with Steve Lacy's weekly open free jams in the early '70s but he'd been listening to the older 'greats' since in the 40's attempting to make music on the piano and trombone. The massive influx of young, free players to Paris found him already there and ready to wail in the 19060's. The trio format allows lots of room for personal expression.
