Thanks to...

The Dominican Jazz Project is most grateful for funding that has been provided by the Chapman Family Faculty Fellowship, College of Arts and Sciences, American Studies and Folklore, Center for the Study of the American South, Department of Music at the University of North Carolina, as well as from John Powell, which has made the recording possible.   

The Dominican Jazz Project also thanks Carlos Francisco Elías and Tony Domínguez for organizing the 2014 Jazzomanía Jazz Festival which brought Guillo Carias and Stephen Anderson to the Dominican Republic—a trip which first laid the seeds for the organization of the Dominican Jazz Project.  Thanks to Jason Richmond (recording), Erik Herbst (mixing), and Phil Bulla at Platinum Productions (mastering) for their expertise as engineers, to Fidelitorium Recordings studio, and to Darby at Summit Records.  Thanks also to photographer, Steven Bromberg for the artist bio photos, to Mary Lide Parker (photojournalist with Endeavors Magazine) for the photos of the CD release concert of the 2017 Jazzomanía Jazz Festival at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, and to Guillo Carias for the scenic photos of the Dominican Republic.
