Hi folks: 2 things–first, want to hear my dulcet tones talking about my CD and my career so far, plus my mumblings about jazz philanthropy and the State of the Gig? Here’s an interview I did last week with KVLU’s Jason Miller. It also features a live cut from our CD release show with guest vocalist Lorin Benedict. Check it out:
Second, I have a couple of short-notice gigs to tell you about: tonight, I’ll be playing and hosting a jam session with drummer Bryan Bowman and bassist Adam Gay (while Ben Stolorow wows them in Japan) at Kaleidoscope in the Mission. Come on by and bring your music-making things!
