He has issued a dozen widely acclaimed albums under his own name including 2007's Migration, 2014's Three Times Three, 2015's Meridian Suite, 2017's Grammy-winning sociopolitical electronica & drums exploration Bad Hombre, 2018's Channels of Energy with the WDR Big Band, 2019's Lines in the Sand, and 2022's Shift (Bad Hombre, Vol. 2).
