Welcome, take 2.

March 22nd, 2010

Welcome to my website!  I’m thrilled to report that my good friend, Peter Bodge–jazz drummer, historian, artist extraordinaire–is designing the cover for my CD which should be available through this website, CD Baby, and Itunes by mid-April.  And I’m launching with some shows in Vermont and Italy in June and July!  Check back with the Itinerary page for that news.

I’ve got new tracks from my soon-to-be-released CD and Walt Cunningham’s new CD on the music page.   I’ve also posted a couple of my original tunes and a 5-part gospel horn section sample.  You can listen to “He’s Gonna Work it Out” from the Music page for a short recorded sample of my arranging and playing.

Thanks for visiting!

Welcome!

Welcome to my site!  Glad you made it.  Here’s a show I caught recently:

I heard the Jason Lindner trio, Now vs. Now at the Vermont Jazz Center in Brattleboro last Saturday.  It’s rare that I’ll go to a jazz concert of entirely original music and truly dig EVERY composition, but I did at this show.  Panagiotis Andreou, Mark Guiliana, and Jason were simply brilliant.
