My new CD, "Outside the Line'" will be released on Positone records on April 15th.
The CD features Rich Perry on tenor, Peter Evans on trumpet and Vinnie Sperrazza on drums. It contains nine new original compostions plus three covers. We'll be
doing a CD release concert at Cornelia Street Cafe on April 15th, which also happens to be my birthday! Please stop by if you're free.
My duo album , "The Angle Below", with guitar legend John Abercrombie will be released later this week on Steeplechase Records. The album features 10 original compositions (7 of mine as well as 3 of John's) as well as the Gordon Jenkins standard "Goodbye". This has been a long time coming, and I'm thrilled that the CD is coming out. You can find links to purchase the CD here. It's also available on iTunes as well as any brick and mortar record shops that are still standing.
We'll be doing a CD release show at the "Carengie Room" in Nyack on Friday, September 27th.
