• Recordings of 2014

    Happy New Year everyone! Here’s a little recap of all the records I played on as a sideman that came out last year. Of course MOBRO came out last May, as well. 2014 was a pretty good year for recording as it turns out.

    Fabio Gouvea – “Escolha”
    Emilio Solla Y La Inestable De Brooklyn – “Second Half” (Nominated for a Grammy!)
    Edward Simon – “Venezuelan Suite” (bass clarinet only)
    Craig Brenan – “Autonomic Robots”
    Madison Rast – “Madison Rast Quintet”
    Brian Charette – “The Question That Drives Us” (bass clarinet only)
    Anne Mette Iversen and Double Life – “So Many Roads”
    Helen Sung – “Anthem For A New Day” (very small cameo appearance on bass clarinet)
    The Holmes Brothers – “Brotherhood”
    Alon Nechushtan – “Venture Bound”
    Dara Tucker – “The Sun Season”

  • Sharing MOBRO on Soundcloud

    Just a few days ago I posted a MOBRO sampler on Soundcloud. If you haven’t listened yet, it just got a lot easier! This 15-minute sampler gives an overview of the journey, and you can read the program notes in the description. Don’t forget to buy a copy if you like what you hear.

  • October 17th and 18th at Smalls!

    I’m thrilled to be presenting some new music next weekend at Smalls with a new group featuring Kevin Hays, Mike Moreno, Matt Clohesy and Kendrick Scott. We’ll mostly be playing material composed during my time as a resident at the 18th St Arts Center in Santa Monica, where I was the 2014 Make Jazz Fellow. Two sets starting at 10:30pm.

  • Otis Brown’s debut

    I’m so honored to have been a part of “The Thought Of You”, Otis Brown III’s new release on Blue Note/Revive. Otis is an old friend from back in the New School days, and this record is like a family reunion of sorts. Pick up your copy here. 1901132_10105547419179314_7829269941434722850_n
