The collaborative trio TAJ (Art Lande, Josh Reed, myself) will again join together for a run of special performances in the Bay Area 11/30-12/3, including a performance with the great local rhythm section of Peter Barshay (bass) and Alan Hall (percussion). Check the Live section for details.
I'm excited to have a short run with some of my favorite musicians in Colorado and elsewhere as we form a quintet featuring original music and select covers. Josh Reed (trumpet), Mike Cemprola (woodwinds), Zack Teran (bass), and Dru Heller (percussion) will join together for the first time as an ensemble, performing at Caffe`Sole (8/3) and Nocturne Jazz and Supper Club (8/4).
I'm excited to record my first album as a leader this August! It'll feature my original compositions, with Josh Reed (trumpet), Mike Cemprola (woodwinds), Heath Walton (woodwinds), Tim Brey (piano), Zack Teran (bass), and Alwyn Robinson (percussion). Plans are for a release by December of 2018. The band will perform at Dazzle @ Baur's on Tuesday July 31st at 7 pm before going into the studio the next day!
