Hi everyone! It’s been a great summer, and I’ve been writing tons of new material to share with you on upcoming gigs. I’m doing some teaching in Langnau, Switzerland in July, as well as leading two very special gigs in August– at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola and at the Village Vanguard! Both will be my first times bringing in my own groups, and we couldn’t be more excited!!
On Tuesday, August 2nd, I’ll be bringing in my quartet from Behind the Sky, our 2015 release that featured Tom Harrell and received a four-star Downbeat Magazine review. Joining us for this show will be one my favorite drummers around, Billy Drummond!! We’ll be playing music from Behind the Sky as well as debuting several new compositions that we will be recording in September during a tour of Argentina!! Two sets, 730 and 930. Please come and support this great band! You can get tickets here!
Then, on Wednesday, August 10th, I’ll be leading a new group at the Village Vanguard, perhaps jazz’s most venerated and respected rooms!! This quartet, featuring Matt Mitchell on piano, Drew Gress on bass and Tom Rainey on drums, will be playing several of composer/saxophonist/brilliant mind John Zorn’s new Book of Bagatelles, as part of his week at the Vanguard. We’ll play one set at 1030 PM, following the extraordinary Craig Taborn in a solo piano setting. Please help us pack the place!! You can get tickets here!
As always, thanks for your continued support, and I hope to see you out and about!
