JAMMAN Wins at first NYC Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival 2018.

10 Sep

Honored with Best Music In Film at first NYC Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival 2018.

Two American acting legends, Michael Rispoli (The Sopranos, Made in Brooklyn + so much more) and Ed O’Ross (Lethal Weapon, Full Metal Jacket, Terminator 3, + so much more), had just finished making their speeches being honored for lifetime achievement at the festival. Then they announced best music category and I had to follow them; I was humbled and felt very fortunate.

Thank you all for your support.

“Freedom Song”

3 Oct

Produced recording of “Freedom Song” today by Diane Kaufmann (poet), David Kerr (composer). Musical director and conductor Jason Tramm led the MidAtlantic Orchestra players and Seton Hall University Choir brilliantly as they executed superbly! Jacqueline Anabwani (orator) delivered a compelling interpretation of Dr. Kaufmann’s text. Fred Trunz served as my audio engineer for the day and collaboratively we captured the ensemble in a beautifully balanced recording. Many thanks to Rev. Richard E. Davidson for providing listening system and all involved for a smooth day!
Video forthcoming…..
