I’m happy to announce that on May 21th and 22th I will have the immense pleasure to record my music at Tedesco in Paramus, NJ! The band includes long-time collaborators and friends. I feel lucky and excited to bring to the studio guitarists Michael Valeanu (Fr) and Isaac Darche (USA), pianist Javi Santiago (USA), bassist Or Bareket (Israel) and drummer Jesse Simpson (USA). We’re going to record primarily original music by myself and a couple tunes by artists that influence me such as Kurt Rosenwinkel and John Coltrane.
Stay tuned…In the meantime I hope to see you on May 16th at the SUGAR BAR (254 West 72nd). It’s going to be amazing!
This is me and Toots Thielemans at the Lincoln Center. This was taken during the NEA Jazz Master Award ceremony in 2009. I encourage you to check out “Affinity” and “Only Trust Your Heart” these are my favorites Toots’albums.
