Dirk K – It’s On

Two souls alas! are dwelling in my breast.

This cite from Goethe’s Faust describes excellent Dirk K‘s split love of Flamenco jazz and smooth jazz. His current work comprises fourteen CD’s as a solo artist, eight CD’s with band projects and further 30 CD’s for other artists such as Randy Brecker, Peter Erskine, Toots Thielemans, Dave Weckl, Brandon Fields, Alan Pasqua, Marc Johnson, Terri Lyne Carrington, Gary Meek, Rick Braun and many more.

His new project It’s On is a return to the smooth jazz genre with five original compositions and five covers. Most of the instruments are played by Dirk. He is joined on several tracks by C.C. Thomas Jr. (bass), Deana Massaro-Williams (cello), Otto Ehling (Rhodes and Wurlitzer), and Dirk’s son Philip Antony on saxophone and flute.
