Tell Your Story


Album Description:

“This CD set is dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and colleague, Omar Clay, whose integrity and commitment to music has been an inspiration to us all. Omar loved to tell a story about a conversation he had with Coleman Hawkins years ago in New York. According to Omar, Hawkins said ‘When it’s your turn to play, get in, tell your story, and get out.’ We hope you enjoy this CD, and find your own stories in our music.”
