I’m thrilled to announce that I’m playing with my sextet at Dizzy’s at Jazz at Lincoln Center this Tuesday August 4th. You can buy tix here. I’m so lucky to have this extraordinary band with me for this special occasion: Kendrick Scott – drums, Kevin Hays – piano, Mike Moreno – guitar, Eric Miller – trombone, and Rick Rosato – bass. We’ll be presenting mostly new music from my time as a composition fellow at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica last year. Sets are at 7:30pm and 9:30pm.
Also, if you want a little sample of our upcoming DW record (out Sept 18th), we’ll be playing in the street this afternoon at One Penn Plaza (between 34th and 35th St and between 7th and 8th Ave). One set at 6pm.
