Concerts with Joshua White

joshua-white-dizzys-2016I’m always inspired by the deep musicianship of pianist Joshua White, and recently enjoyed two different performances with him in April. The first was an improvised concert at Dizzy’s in San Diego with his sextet, which also included Stephanie Richards, Ellen Weller, Mark Dresser, and Kjell Nordeson (thanks Robert Bush for the review!) . The next weekend, Joshua performed on a new piece of mine titled Bonegaggle #2, for trombone, piano and electronics, on our ICIT Faculty Concert at UC Irvine, which also featured works by my fantastic colleagues Nicole Mitchell, Chris Dobrian, Ko Umezaki, and Lukas Ligeti, with special guests Joshua and Maggie Parkins.
