I hope your summers are off to a great start! It’s been busy over here, with recent great performances with the Maria Schneider Orchestra, a recording for the great Uri Caine and my recent song cycle debut as part of the Stone at National Sawdust commissioned premier. July and August promise to be even better, with my debut as a leader at Smalls and performing at the Newport Jazz Festival as well as performances with Mike Pride, Bojan Vuletic and a short but sweet Norway jaunt.
My recent Irabbagast Records release, Dr Quixotic’s Traveling Exotics, received a rave 4 1/2 star review in Downbeat Magazine and also was previewed/reviewed on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and the great reviews keep pouring in! We are really proud of this music and hope you take a minute to check it out.
Thank you for your continued support!
