Billy Jr. contines to play as a sideman, but has now stepped in to the frontman position with his upcoming debut album... “Transformed Conception, Part 1” will be digitally released as an EP in the near future, and then coupled with part 2 for the full release in 2010..

(part 1 currently in mixing) Featuring a young and amazing cast of up and coming musicians, Billy stretches the jazz genre with his unique soloing influences, powerful and lucious tone, and his added, “electric identity.” Read more on Last.fm.
