The Return Journey represents a three year gap in the DMJO being in the studio and also a journey I undertook in 2012 driving across the US visiting some of my musical spiritual centers including the University of North Texas and visiting old musical friends and colleagues.
Thanks to all the musicians and composers involved in this recording for their enthusiasm, sensational charts and magnificent playing. Special thanks to all the generous people who supported us in our crowd funding campaign to make this recording possible including David Farrell, Plan B Big Band, Allan Eaton Studio, Steve Dower, Debbie & Michael McKinstry and Madoka Miyamoto. A big thanks to Ross Irwin, Jason Home (, Cheryl Clark, Lana Daubermann (, Sunny & staff at the Apartment (, Andy Alcock (our live sound engineer) and to my magnificent wife and family – thank you for your love and encouragement! Daryl McKenzie, Melbourne 2014.
