I'll be joining veteran guitarist Andy Brown for his bi-weekly steady Sunday gig at Winter's. Stalwart bassist John Sims will join us. Hopefully you can as well! INFO
I'm excited to be a part of an ensemble that will pay tribute to the legacy of legendary Chicago saxophonist Von Freeman, one of the most original improvisers to come from the Windy City. The front line will consist of fellow saxophonists Geof Bradfield and Rajiv Halim, and the rhythm section of drummer Dana Hall and bassist Dennis Carroll will be led by Von's longtime guitarist at the New Apartment Lounge, Michael Allemana. This is sure to be a fun band full of fireworks! We'll play every Tuesday in May and June with sets at 9:30 and 11:30pm.
I'm excited to explore the art of duo playing for this evening of jazz at Chicago's newest jazz club, Winter's. Joining me for this evening of intimate American songbook and jazz standards is pianist Chris White. Hope you'll join us!
A few months ago, George Fludas asked me to fill in at the last minute for his bi-weekly Sunday steady at Winter's when his pianist couldn't make it. Along with creative and supportive bassist Dennis Carroll, we had such a great time playing in a piano-less trio setting that we are revisiting that format for this evening at Winter's. The three of us have a great musical rapport, and we hope you can join us! INFO
