Portraits (Sunnyside 2015) is his most ambitious project to date: composing music his about friends and inspirators, celebrating and highlighting those he calls his "musical and personal compasses". their musical influences and writing styles, favored harmonies and even personality traits were used in the making of the compositions. He plays with four of the subjects for this festival: Ben Wendel on tenor, Can Olgun on piano and Desmond White on bass.
