Check it out! Me and the boys recently made the trek uptown for a special, springtime birthday event. beautiful weather, delicious eats, and some classic central park scenery. enjoy.
I’ve recently put out an EP with some Gypsy Jazz friends. Click below to stream or download the record. You can pay what you want for the full album. Either $.10 or $10 will go a long way to supporting new music.
Also new pictures are finally up! They were taken over the last year or so around North America.
10-21-2010 … I’m looking forward to a very productive fall coming up with some really cool projects. October 10 I will be playing upright bass in Amie Amis’ quartet at Miles Jazz Club in the UES.
On October 13 I am going to be playing solo at Bodega Wine Bar in Bushwick, BK. Should be a fun night of traditional blues and jazz. I will be playing finger style guitar with the help of my loop station and a few good friends.
Then again I could always use this gig to showcase my beat making skills:
9-10-2011 … I have entered the world of art contests! The very cool website, Booooooom has inspired me to create the “Tape Deck” board.
…doing a grind…
…nice paint job…
5/12/2010 … It’s been a busy few weeks; running around town, learning to skateboard, teaching lessons, playing upright, etc, etc. Last week I played two gigs with Spencer Katzman on guitar and David Aaron on tenor sax. Both shows were at the very tasty Dakar restaurant in Bed-Stuy.
March and April brought me into the studio with Joshua Sitron and his very talented group of improvisers both aural and thespian. Look out for our work on the Fox pilot, Allen Gregory, as well as the concept for a children’s show about tapeworms. Fun!
In the coming weeks I will be preparing for another tribute show with This Ambitious Orchestra, an early jazz gig with Amie Amis at Superfine, and my very own Bushwick Open Studio
4/5/2010 … What a whirlwind weekend. I played the Good Friday service with Calvary Church, bowing some classic Bach Chorals with a full choir, cello and bass clarinet chamber group.
On Saturday we started an all-out explosion of sound recording with the band 12,000 Trees. We had 10 musicians in the live room recording a small army of percussion, guitars, synths and wind instruments. Special thanks to Mike Thies for helping with the recording and Ishlab studios for providing the space. Rough mixes coming soon.
After the recording session I headed a few blocks to a jazz gig with Amie Amis at Superfine. The room was receptive, we met Eric Dolphy’s cousin, and ate some vegan soup!
With all these fine music works I was still able to find time to have a limbo contest at the McCarren playground and check out a house show from The So So Glo’s in Bushwick. Cheers.
