New album out with Garrett Wingfield! Im so proud of this album- we had a great time improvising and our friendship and funny-ness shows.

In addition to the newlbum, a a quick update: my trip to Houston with Garrett was incredible....I met so many ridiculous musicians and improvisors in Denton, Houston, Fort Worth, Dallas. Check out my instagram for photos (and snippets of music) from my week in Texas!

Next week I'll be in Texas making sounds with Garrett Wingfield! Garrett is an amazing musician and saxophonist/ creative spirit. We have lots of duo shows planned and shows with his Nothing Machine (3 altos at its core....but 6 for our show!) and other shows with lots of saxophones. I'll be in noisy saxophone heaven!

Then I quickly fly out to Washington D.C. to join close friends and intimate duo Danielle Wertz and Tal Cohen. They have a new record out and I'll be joining them for their CD Release Party. DC Friends, you can buy advance tickets here!

Its been about four years now that I've been booking music every Wednesday night at The Fish House.

I'm so proud of that this place has become, presenting incredible local and out-of town talent every week in Miami. NO easy feat to pull off and I'll always be grateful to our audience, jammers, musicians, and most importantly, Angela and Jose Rivero who own the place. Their continued support is unwavering and their dedication to keeping live music happening in Miami is inspiring.

We, the musicians are indebted and grateful.

I've decided to make a calendar so everyone knows whats going on - there's too much great $H1t happening here week after week for only a few of us to know about it. 

So..... SHARE, SHARE, SHARE

2016 has been a year with many personal challenges for me and as a result a great year for personal and musical growth. I played with so many great musicians and had so, so many deep, deep experiences. I can only hope that the coming years will keep being like this! Many thanks to all my friends, colleagues, and fans that I get to share music and life with- you all make it that much better and our connection is what keeps me (and all of us) going. 

Looking forward to making lots of music in the new year! Kicking it off with...

What a great past few weeks its been! In spite of all of the awful things going on with politics and people relations, I'm very grateful that I've been able to make art through it all. Last night, I played with the master player and master hanger, jazz messenger, and world traveler BROfessor Brian Lynch - what a treat!

The week before, I joined Pete Francis and the Miami Big Sound Orchestra for some big band music in the tradition of Machito and his band. Such a cool thing to be a part of in the heart of 8th street in Domino Park. Heard some amazing street musicians down there too....certainly trying to hang out more on Calle Ocho after that one! I joined Jean Caze's Amede at the historic Ball and Chain down there too- its always super fun playing with them.
