Hello! This past month has been such an incredible month of music for me. I am so grateful to making so much music with so many musicians that allow me to be me! A huge shoutout to bassist Kenneth Jimenez for having me bring of myself to his original music a few times now at Lagniappe House. I'm also very grateful for recent collaborations with Kate Reid and Ira Sullivan at The Fish House and for all those who join me when I lead conductions!
I'm also very happy to share a great review from All About Jazz about Sound Underground's debut album! Check it out at the link below:
"The trio fits well together, creating a fresh sound...uncluttered and open...capable of grabbing a listener's attention and holding it indefinitely. From first note to last, this is a highly enjoyable album that leaves one thirsting for its successor... They have a very bright future." All About Jazz
I was also selected as a participant of the 2015 Betty Carter Jazz Ahead Program. I'm so thrilled to be spending two weeks at the Kennedy Center working with Jason Moran, JD Allen, Eric Harland, Carmen Lundy and others in addition to my peers!
