New CD out May 15!! May and June performances

Hi everyone,

I’m really excited to announce the May 15th release of my new album Dr. Quixotic’s Traveling Exotics on Irabbagast Records, featuring Tim Hagans, Luis Perdomo, Yasushi Nakamura and Rudy Royston! We recorded it live on tour in South America in late 2016 and it showcases this working group on six of my extended compositions. Early reviews have been great, including a 4 1/2 star review in the June 2018 issue of Downbeat Magazine! It will be available on Bandcamp, CDBaby, iTunes and other places starting May 15th! Thanks for checking it out; we are really proud of this one!

In other news, I’m also excited to be performing these next couple of months with the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Barry Altschul, Daniel Carter and debuting my 12-song song cycle for mezzo soprano saxophone, mezzo soprano voice and piano on June 27th as part of the Stone at National Sawdust commission series. Music!

Thank you for your continued support. Hope to see you out there!
