Looking forward to playing with the Greg Ruvolo Big Band Collective, this afternoon, as we perform a Benefit Concert for the Local 802 Musicians’ Emergency Relief Fund. We’ll be playing at the Local 802 Club Room (322 W48th St in NYC, between 8th & 9th Aves) at 5pm. No cover charge, but donations to the ERF are encouraged! Come on out to support the cause and hear a GREAT big band.

Thoroughly looking forward to playing with Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra at Birdland, in NYC, this evening. We’re making a welcome return after our summer hiatus. 2 shows – 9pm & 11pm. Come on out – we have a few new faces, and will apparently be receiving our Jazz Journalists Association Award for Best Large Ensemble. Should be a festive one, all around!
