Summer 2016
7/11/2016 - It’s July 11th and I’m in the middle a welcome slow period this summer. Nice to have a couple weeks to just walk, jog, ride my bike, go to the beach, and spend time with my kids and friends. I finished up for the year at the U of Manitoba on April 22nd, came back to NYC, and had several gigs right away, including a really fun one with a group of mine at The Kitano on the 28th. I also had gigs with Scott Reeves, Alan Ferber, Joey Berkley and others. Then I went back to Winnipeg for the Jazz festival, always a fun week! Played a nice outdoor gig with Anna-Lisa Kirby, a very special concert of Steve Kirby’s music, and a bunch of jam sessions and rehearsals with my friends and peers at the University- really fun! Since then I’m trying to get back into the swing of things with a book I’m writing on jazz musicians, as well as doing some comp. and arranging work. I also hope to put the finishing touches on the new trio CD in the next 6-8 weeks or so. In addition I have a bunch of very fun gigs coming up later this month. Two with Bill Charlap at the Jazz in July Fest at the 92nd St Y, one with Steve Kirby’s group in NYC at Fat Cat, Poisson Rouge with Youngjoo Song, a gig with Scott Reeves Big band, Smoke with Mike LeDonne, etc. After that I plan on doing the U of Manitoba Jazz Camp in August. I’ll be on sabbatical from the University this fall, so I have some touring scheduled. Europe in late Sept.- early Oct. California the last week of Oct., Korea 1st week of November. Should be fun! Most importantly, I’m extremely thankful for the time this summer with my sons, who are now 15 and 17. Amazing watching them grow… Hope you have a great summer, thanks for checking in!
