Recent concerts

jwqtetLoft2014I was lucky to start fall 2014 performing 4 gigs with some fantastic bands. The first was to premiere some new compositions by Mark Dresser with his quintet at Cornelia St. Cafe in NYC, along with Rudresh Mahanthappa, Denman Maroney and Michael Sarin. Then back on the west coast I had another chance to play on LA’s excellent Angel City Jazz Festival, this time with an all-star band led by Taylor Ho Bynum, featuring Nicole Mitchell, Jeff Gauthier, Jeff Parker, Mark Dresser, and Alex Cline. And in early October, I played in both LA and San Diego with a quintet (pictured) led by Joshua White along with Gavin Templeton, Mark Dresser and Kjell Nordeson, doing 2 nights of very rewarding open improvisation. I’m also looking forward to 2 concerts with my own trio in SoCal in November – more on that soon…
