Award-winning filmmaker Dennis Connors has captured the creative process on two of the songs — Ama Dablam and Blessed, written by Scott Neumann — in two beautifully shot videos from the recording session.

Scott recorded with Russ Spiegal’s band Uncommon Knowledge. The band has been together for the past two years and is a regular at NYC’s jazz hotspot The Zinc Bar. Russ is very accomplished guitarist, composer and arranger. And, fellow band members Tim Armacost, Mike Eckroth and bassist Gary Wang are all exemplary musicians who are fine bandleaders in their own right. The collaborative talent of the members makes for some truly remarkable music.
