Wow, what an IMMENSE few weeks of soul lifting activities! Not gonna lie, I slept in quite a bit after six nonstop days of the NY Hot Jazz Camp culminated in a huge all day musical blowout at the Gotham Jazz Festival. It was a lot of fun to co-direct and see and hear old and new friends! We're looking at dates for next year... Stay tuned :):)
But as always I'm looking forward and spring is ramping up so FIRST I'm channeling that energy into my last of the Joe's Pub series April 25th with a theme of VELOCITY. It's been a blast playing new tunes at this cool crossover venue. I'll be hopping around the East coast for gigs & workshops in all the "New" spots: New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire. I'm thrilled to be working more closely with the Louis Armstrong House Museum and will be hosting an all ages "Family Day" workshop talking about COMMUNITY and how Louis brought people together on April 29th.
Happy Jazz Appreciation Month!
