Summer has been great. I've been doing a lot of writing, playing and teaching. I was very lucky to be part of the Dallas Fusion Festival with my Neat-tet (neat-net in the poster haha) which also featured Chuck Rainey, The Funky Knuckles, Noel Johnston, and Mark Lettieri (poster below). Super heavy guys! I will be going on tour to California later this month with the incredible Ginny Mac and playing some shows in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Phoenix.
My Neat-tet will be playing this Friday at the Whitehouse in Denton, Texas featuring vocalists Ginny Mac and Jay Jay Douglas! We play 8-10ish, please come out if you are free!
I am very excited to announce that I will be recording my debut album in August through Quaz Audio (http://www.quazaudio.com). The album is entitled "Dreamer" which will feature all of my original compositions drawing from multiple influences (jazz, rock, r&b, electronic, Indian). It will feature some of my favourite musicians and people on the planet: Ian Henderson, Jonathan Mones, Emily Davis, Isabel Crespo, Ginny Mac, Alex Browne, Terence Hobdy, and (hopefully) a guest appearance by Sri Poovalur Sriji. Robert Trusko, William De Alcuaz (from Quaz Audio), and Evan Scallan will be producing the album and Daniel Routh (http://danielrouth.com) will be doing photos and video for the project. Stay posted for more updates on the project!
