Summer News!

Hello lovely friends, fans, and family,

It’s been an incredible summer run filled with quality family time, sparkling jazz camp energies and general great all-round music making. I feel more fortunate than ever to have been surrounded by inspiring young music-futures as well as sharing the bill and the teaching arena with so many of my wonderful peers.

I’ve done my best to keep track of all of the concerts and events and am sharing a few photos below.  From the all-star youngsters backstage at Dizzy’s who make up the Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Orchestra to the night of music-making at Sing Sing Kill Brewery with my combo from Purchase College (and special guest on mouthpiece, Kårinna Wikan) to teaching and playing at three unique jazz camps. 

Jazz camp West was as magical as Artist Director Allison Miller described it be and more. 
The Brubeck Summer Colony was overflowing with talent and future jazz inspirations. Banff was beyond description and I’ve returned home fully energized and motivated to share the wisdom and joy for music and more with my students at MSM and Purchase College.

I also had the pleasure of playing on mega-musician/singer, Kristin Berardi’s exciting new album and joining the awe-inspiring Melissa Gardener on her CD release at City Winery.
Stay tuned as my fabulous new website is nearing its final stages of completion, with a launch date happening in the next few weeks. 
Peace and good music to all and go to my Facebook fanpage (in the meantime) for all upcoming events.

All my best,

Dear sound and event followers,

Hello from Chicago where I’ll be playing tonight, Friday, June 7th, with Jon Faddis at the Symphony Center

I’ve finally found a moment to regroup, re-cap and update before my summer of camps and camping begin.

What an amazing spring this has been!

I started April with a bang! Recording with the John Daversa for an extremely exciting and important new project, the Suffragists, highlighting music from the suffragist movement. More on that later!

From playing  So What with Ravi Coltrane, Christian McBride, Jimmy Cobb and more, at the JazzHouse Kids Fundraiser in NYC, to a full-on teaching stint at the University of Miami, with family-time at Disney-world and more!

More, including playing with my dear sister-in-sound Tia Fuller and the wonderful Princeton Jazz ensemble at the inaugural Princeton Jazz Festival, my first visit to Oklahoma to play with the University Big band there, an awe-inspiring hit with Jim McNeely and his Tentet at Wesleyan University and finally finishing out April with a guest artist visit to Grand Rapids, Minnesota to work with some fine young musicians there.

More reflections to come, but first, a very exciting event to discuss!

This Sunday, June 9th, at 1 PM Eastern Time, I will present a live webinar for all to take part in. The topic I will be discussing is Meaningful and Effective Practicing. To see this webinar go to JazzHeaven.comand register to view. There is even a chance to have a 1-on-1 session with me during the live stream. 

Also, I am in the process of building a new and improved website, so stay tuned! All my live dates are available on my site and Facebook as well! 

In the music,

Happy April Everyone!

For those of us in the Northeast, we might even be get some true Spring weather in the next few weeks. Although my iPhone weather says snow on friday, definitely an April Fools joke.

As the winter wanes and the warmer weather amps up, so does my schedule.

No time for gardening just yet…Tonight, I am at Dizzy’s with the William Patterson Big band, tomorrow in the studio with Grammy winning John Daversa and his exciting Sufferagette Project featuring a host of exciting musicians.

Then it’s off to Akron, Ohio to play with Chris Coles and the Kent State folks.

Next weekend is the inaugural Princeton University Jazz Festival where I will perform with Tia Fuller and an amazing group of student players from the University.

Mid- April gets busy, ha! I’m honored to be on board to play at the Jazz House Kids fundraiser gala on the 17th at City Winery, then it’s off to Miami to teach for a few days at the Frost school of music.

I’ll be guest-artisting at the University of Oklahoma the following week, my first time in a state I have yet to discover!

The incredible Dena DeRose has invited me to join her at Birdland on the 26th and then it’s off to Weslyan University to play with the one and only Jim McNeeley and his nonet!

Rounding of the month I’ll make my way midwest again to play with the Duluth folks at the Grand Rapids Minnesota Jazz Festival.

Thank you all for following and supporting this lively life of mine!  

Peace and good sounds to all!
