He’s churning out prodigious amounts of music as a performer (leader and sideman), composer, producer, and record label owner. What’s more, all of that music sounds nothing like anything you’ve heard from him before and more like John Maestas—vivacious, curious, fun, and funky—than anything he’s done in the past.
