I’m featured on a new record by trumpeter Elliot Bild that is being released next week (11/25/2020). “Isms” was recorded live at Chris’ Jazz Cafe last year, and features some of Philadelphia’s finest jazz musicians. It’s always a treat playing Elliot’s music, check it out!
My tune, Some Innate Thing, played by Matt Scarano (d) Sandy Eldred (b) and myself. For our friends at Common Time Music School – who enjoyed the masked and socially distant concert. More on my YouTube Channel
Enjoy this piece by the Crosscurrents crew + the beautiful movements of Sarah Rot (R) and Sam Assemany (L)! All parts recorded separately and mixed by myself in Logic. Video editing by Sarah. I had a great time working on this. If you like it, please share!
Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe in the current state of the world. I thought I’d give a quick update.
I’ve moved all of my students over to Zoom with a lot of success. This is the only work I have at the moment since all of my gigs have cancelled through at least May. See my Lessons page for details.
So far I’ve been helped directly with grants from the Jazz Foundation of America, Musicares, the New Music Solidarity Fund, and Philly Music Fest. Waiting to hear about more of the grants listed below. If you’re an artist and you’ve lost work because of COVID, apply!
It’s going on 72 hours since I last left my house. This COVID-19 is no joke and I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe out there. I’ve applied for a few “Artist Relief Funds” that I thought looked promising, so I thought I’d share them here.
