The best comedy comes from a place of vulnerability, and Herrerra does this beautifully with this autobiographical story. (more...)

'With all of the construction noise in my house, I had a difficult time writing for seventeen people what was then my current project composing for big band. I've always admired Legrand's music and one morning last summer, I woke up and heard his music in my head. It was a quartet, ironically, without a piano, sort of like Ornette meets Legrand.'
