Getting back in the publishing game…

Today, I realized that it’s over 3 years since I published a new book at Airflow Music. 3 years!

That is going to change very soon. First up, I’ll finally release the printed version of Twisted Technical Studies, Vol. 2 which was suspended due to the pandemic, when the PDF version originally came out in March 2020. Then it’s time to finish Vol. 3 in both digital and print formats and get them out too. Maybe that’ll get me moving on finishing some of the other titles I have in various stages of development.

Deep breaths and let’s go!

UNO Jazz Camp 2023

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be joining the faculty for this year’s UNO Jazz Camp at the University of Nebraska Omaha, from June 5-9, 2023. In addition to teaching trumpet masterclasses and coaching ensembles, I’ll be playing lead trumpet in the faculty big band – the Great Plains Great Big Band – which performs daily during the week. The band/faculty is stacked with wonderful musicians and educators. I’m honored to be included and thoroughly looking forward to it.

If you’re in the area and would be interested in attending the Jazz Camp, it’s not too late. Registration is open until May 31, 2023. Please visit for more information.

Huge thanks to Willie Murillo for the recommendation and Pete Madsen for the invitation. I’m excited to play with you both!

We’re north of the border, today, up in Brantford, ON, Canada. We’ll be performing a matinee of the music of Ray Charles, with “Ray On My Mind” at the Sanderson Centre. Show starts at 2pm. Come by if you’re in the area.
