Chris McNulty – Eternal

The love a mother has for her son is the driving force behind Chris McNulty’s Eternal (Palmetto Records, 2015). Combining her charming voice with a chamber ensemble and a jazz trio, she honors Sam McNulty, who died in 2011.

Sam was a hip-hop artist and composer, whose artist name is Chap One.

The core trio is comprised of John DiMartino, piano; Ugonna Okegwo, bass; and Gregory Hutchinson, drums. Paul Bollenback, guitar; and Matthew Jodrell, flugelhorn, also contribute. Steve Newcomb provides orchestration, arrangements and conducts the chamber ensemble. The chamber players are Mazz Swift, Josh Henderson and Amanda Lo, violins; Trevor New, viola; Meaghan Burke and Marika Hughes, cello; Jodie Rottle, flute and alto flute; Ivan Barenboim, clarinet and bass clarinet; John Morgan-Bush, French horn; and Ben Wendel, bassoon.
