and Ellis Hall. Macchia arranged and produced the CD, an eclectic mix of New Orleans second line, latin, funk, swing and ballads. Says Jazziz Magazine of Macchia, “an inventive composer and arranger who deserves comparisons to Gil Evans and Pat Metheny."

Macchia has worked with Macy Gray, Ella Fitzgerald, Brian Wilson, Yes, the Tonight Show Band and composed and orchestrated on numerous films and television shows. He received Grammy nominations in 2007/2008 for his CDs Emotions and Landscapes.
