Hello, everyone! I hope you’ve been staying warm out there… I happened to be in Chicago for the -50 degree day and that was… insane.

Anyways, we’re up to some new and exciting things here; I’m finishing up my next release, which will combine a record of the piano quintet I wrote for Matt Mitchell and Mivos Quartet with a solo mezzo soprano album. This double record will be called Invisible Horizon and should be out by the end of the year! Stay tuned. Irabbagast Records is also excited to be releasing new albums by the Uptown Jazz Tentet and Anders Svanoe, among others, in the upcoming months. And I look forward to reuniting with great French saxophonist and composer Sylvain Rifflet for an upcoming tour featuring Jim Black and some new music written by Sylvain and myself, as well as a residency at the Zagreb Music Biennale in April, where I’ll perform solo as well as debut a piece I’ve written for myself with the renowned Zagreb Saxophone Quartet. Onwards and upwards!
