Without you, there is no album release…..so THANK YOU!

This all began with an idea. A love for each other’s sound. A love for the simple, lyrical beauty and compelling emotional voice that was pouring through each of us. A love for the music that speaks so profoundly without uttering a word. A love for jazz. And a deep regard for the depth and beauty of the jazz ballad.

We are SO thrilled to be joining forces with you to bring our new album, “Moment to Moment,” to fruition!

THE GOOD NEWS: Phase 1 is complete! Not only has our album already been recorded at one of the most notable recording studios in the U.S., Fantasy Studios, but is has also been mixed and mastered by some of the most talented engineers in the business -- Adam Munoz (recording and mixing) and Joe Tarantino (mastering). Rounding out our quartet for this recording project are the world-class musicians Jeff Chambers on bass (Freddie Hubbard, Ahmad Jamal) and Jaz Sawyer on drums (Abbey Lincoln, Wynton Marsalis). It’s is an 8-song, 56-minute gem of an album that we know you’ll love.

THE GREAT NEWS: Phase 2 is ready to go and we can’t wait to collaborate with you! We are now ready to get our album artwork, manufacturing, and marketing campaign off the ground and need your help to do it. Every pre-order, no matter the size, goes towards completing and releasing our album so that we can share it with you and the rest of the world!

And, after you help us achieve our goal, we’ll donate a portion of all additional funds raised via your contributions on Pledge Music to the Grammy Foundation’s “Grammy in the Schools” programs (www.grammyintheschools.com/programs). So, your generosity will also benefit aspiring young music students across the country!

After you pledge, we’ll send you periodic project updates and videos leading up to the official January 21, 2014 release date, featuring behind-the-scenes rehearsal, recording, and interview video footage from our sessions at Fantasy Studios. You’ll have an insider’s look at the process of making this recording and will glean insights into our approach to each song on the album.

Thank you in advance for being a part of this project. Just knowing that our friends, colleagues, and community are a part of this process makes it even more meaningful for us!

With immense gratitude,

Cava Menzies and Nick Phillips
