Hey there! I’m going to try to be better about updating you on my happenings, there sure have been a lot lately!!
Played a really great show last night with Realistic Orchestra at Yoshi’s SF; in the set we got to play my original composition “Reactance” as well as a brand new arrangement I did (this past weekend, whew!), which was commissioned by dear friend Bill Evans as a tribute to Gil Scott-Heron & the British jazz group Loose Tubes.
Also recently played a great show at Bottom of the Hill with Lord Loves a Working Man! We had an amazing audience that came for their record release party, and I was super happy to get to play with them.
Earier that same day I had driven up to Grass Valley to perform with Brass Mafia at the CA Worldfest! We played two different fun sets on two different stages there, and then led a parade of people & kids of all ages throughout the festival grounds. It was a really great day filled with lots of positive energy from the staff as well as the festival attendees. The band loved it!
Let’s see… tomorrow I’m playing on the rooftop of Oakland Kaiser with Dynamic, which should be super fun. I’m also finishing some horn arrangements for a recording session with Renee Asteria, then more private & public gigs this coming month.. Also Jazz Mafia Symphony in LA!! I will do my best to keep my calendar up to date with stuff you can check out!
