Andrew Hill project, NYJW student concert and the 55bar with Tony Moreno.

Friday, December 10th, 2010

We had a ball at the Stone, Landmarc sounded as great as ever and the new suite written when I was stuck in Copenhagen due to the volcano action is taking shape. I am highly anticipating a four page article written in Jazz NL about my music. I should have the copy in the mail soon, they named Landmarc the best release of 2010.

NYJW will have its student concert Sunday the 12th at Boom NYC (152 Spring str. starting 5:30pm). All the workshops will perform and the faculty will round of the night with some music. If you are interested in joining a workshop this would be the night to check out.

Whats new next week? A great performance on December 15 with the Andrew Hill project lead by Ron Horton and Tim Horner. Its an all-star formation plus fantastic arrangements, always great to play with this group. (Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open, 622 DeGraw St. betw. 3rd and 4th Ave, 10pm). And I again have the pleasure to perform with Tony Moreno at the 55bar on Dec.23, all his music.

January 2011 will be great, playing a duo concert at the Kitano, a Global Motion concert at the Corneliastreet Café, and with Amina figarova at the Zinc Bar, a true NYC month. In February back on the road in Europe.
