“I have so many tracks that I have been home-recording. This opportunity brings my compositions to life, and this is a great way to highlight the talent here,” said trumpeter-composer Hendrick about the first sessions on a recent Sunday. “I was not sure if I was actually gonna play, but this is really cool, joining up with these musicians. This week, we will add Maria Zemantowski, a flamenco-style guitarist and Brian Melick on percussion. There is such great energy!”
Additional musicians joining in Hendrick’s initial sessions included Tony Perrino and Drew Costa on keyboards, Jeff Prescott on drums, Terry Galvin on guitar, Hunter Galvin on synthesizer, James Kirk on bass and Fred Young on trumpet with John Chiara at the soundboard.
