The Bad Plus and my new CD

It's been a while since my last post. I've been busy writing lesson plans, instead of blogs. But I did a really cool solo saxophone gig a few weeks ago at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC. I opened up for the The Bad Plus. They were celebrating 10 years together, and their new release Never Stop.

They were definitely an appreciative audience. It gave me a lot of confidence and encouragement to keep doing what I'm doing. Solo saxophone is not an easy path to pursue. So whenever I can get support, I'm very grateful.

For my third solo saxophone CD, which I'm looking to record sometime in December, I'll be exploring the music of Duke Ellington and Steve Lacy. I'm playing with the title The Lacy Ellington Suite. We'll see...

I'll keep you posted.
