Pianist J.J.Kaufmann and I enjoy a rich collaborative partnership exploring classical forms (such as J.S. Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”), standard jazz repertoire, contemporary pop tunes, spirituals, and one another’s compositions. 
— Jon Ailabouni

Lullaby And GoodnightOneself, and Beguile | Imps by Jon Ailabouni, premiered at Who Do You Trust? an installation-style dance work conceived in collaboration with choreographer Jane Hawley. 

Were You There is a spiritual song often heard on Good Friday. This recording is taken from a live performance at Luther College, in Decorah, IA. The recital program was crafted spontaneously from a set of twenty tunes prepared by the duo.
