Fall 2016
10/3/2016 - It's been a really nice end to the summer and start of fall in recent weeks. I played with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra Aug 29th, played a nice quartet gig at William Patterson College with Mike Moreno on Sept 8th, played 3 gigs at the COTA Festival in the Del. Water Gap to honor Phil Woods on Sept 11th, ( one w/a student group, one with my trio, and one with the great Bob Dorough). On 9/14 I did a clinic at NYU, and I flew to Europe the next day. I did some sightseeing and saw some friends, but the focus of the trip was a series of gigs and teaching in Marseille and northern Italy, and a bit of research before that. Really a great and fun trip! I stayed in Marseille with my friend Marc Glass, spent a day with his parents in Grans, in Provence, saw a friend, Ann Tullough near Arles, and was in Italy for 4+ days in Torino and Ivrea for gigs and teaching. In Marseille I played an informal house party and did some teaching. Later this month I'll be playing at Smalls with Alan Ferber's nonet. Then Alan and I will be doing a West coast tour with his brother Mark and Matt Pavolka. From there I go on to Korea Nov 1 to play with Manny Weyland, Youngjoo Song and others. I arrive on Nov 2nd, return to NYC Nov 11th. I'll be leading my quartet at The Kitano Nov 28th, and playing the Jazz Nativity Dec 18th. After that I'll be going back to the U of Manitoba on Jan 4th to teach the 2nd semester. I'm on sabbatical this semester, been enjoying the time and freedom and am very thankful to the school for this! Looking forward to a great end to the year! Thanks for checking in...
