Quintet concerts and LA Times article

I’m very excited about some upcoming concerts this week in SoCal with a new quintet featuring my trio bandmates Chris Tordini and Dan Weiss as well as special guests Nicole Mitchell and Joshua White. We’ll play on Oct. 26 at the Irvine Barclay Theatre on a split bill with Nicole Mitchell’s “When Life’s Door Opens,” and then we’ll also play on Oct. 27 in San Diego, on Bonnie Wright’s wonderful Fresh Sound series. I’m writing new music specifically for this new quintet and it’s such a privilege to collaborate with these 4 people who are among my favorite composer-improvisers on the planet. And thanks to Cristofer Gross for writing a preview article on the Barclay concert for the LA Times!
