I’m fresh off the plane back from Europe and hitting the ground running! Looking forward to playing with Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, this evening, at Birdland in NYC. 2 shows – 9pm and 11pm. Along with the usual great music there will be the added entertainment of wondering whether I’ll still be awake and functioning by the end! Hope to see you there, so we can find out together!

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.
