Hi! These past two months have been incredible for me. I've had so much personal and musical growth and it's great to feel times like these as they are happening.
My time at the Banff Workshop for Creative Music and Jazz was incredible! Over three weeks, I got to work with some of the most honest musicians on the planet in what has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The Banff Centre was so very gracious and warm to us and I'm so glad that I was able to take part in workshop like this one- my musical mind is in a completely different place now. I've made some lifelong friends and met musicians I hope to play with for years to come.
In Miami, I continue to play at The Fish House every Wednesday night, now joined by the great Ira Sullivan every second Wednesday of the month! I performed a concert and gave a masterclass at the WDNA Jazz Gallery with my quartet and also been playing lots around town and with a Chordless Quartet alongside saxophonist Mark Small and drummer Rodolfo Zuniga.
I also recently posted some youtube videos of my quartet in the studio. I love playing with these guys, check it out here!
After a week's vacation in the Florida Keys, I'm looking forward to Sound Underground's three week tour of Bulgaria! This will be my first time in Europe and our first tour as a band. Can't wait!
Until next time....
