Welcome to our ArtistShare® Project BOP!

BOP is a one-of-a-kind traditional bebop album that brings together world class musicians, including Rick Braun, Jeff Lorber, Chuck Loeb, Harvey Mason, Brian Bromberg, Til Bronner, Everette Harp, Eric Marienthal, Brian Dunne, Randy Brecker, and John Pattitucci. BOP was conceptualized and brought to life at the Berks Jazz Festival, held annually in Pennsylvania. The idea to create this album was thought up by myself, Jeff Lorber, and Chuck Loeb, who coordinates the Berks Jazz Fest bebop jam sessions. We organized and co-produced this album together, and later recorded it at my studio.

All contributions and proceeds will go towards a truly wonderful organization: the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Foundation. Based in Kansas City, the PKD Foundation is fully committed to discovering treatments and a cure for the disease, which we completely believe in as well. We chose this foundation because many of us feel very strongly about it. I, myself, am a kidney transplant recipient and many members of my family have suffered from PKD, so this project is my way of spreading the word and giving back to a foundation that has done worlds of good for me and many loved ones.

Participate today, help the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation, and make a difference in the world!
