Hello ho ho!
Happiest holidays to all of you fine and friendly people. It's been a year of big travel all around the world and I've really enjoyed meeting and re-connecting with all of you who read this. Ok even those of you who don't ;) I'm writing now from Shanghai where I've been for 2 1/2 weeks playing at the new Jazz At Lincoln Center club with my regular quintet which has been a really awesome experience. Musically we are growing through challenging material; we focused on Chet Baker our first week, an iconic record by Sarah Vaughan featuring Clifford Brown last week and we'll be swinging out the rest of the run with my Brass & Belles show of horn/vocal duos of the big band era. We played the first ever swing dance in the club which was a huge success! I even celebrated my birthday (shoutout to Sagittarians!) by eating bizarre foods with friends. This trip has definitely made us tighter as a band and I'm pretty sure we all still like each other too :)
LAST CHANCE: We're in the closing days of the Pledge Music Campaign, so take this last chance to hear my next album first by pre-ordering OR consider gifting it to a friend!
