It's been an enlightening year for me in Reno teaching jazz piano and improvisation at UNR. And it was great to cap things off by playing with my colleagues Peter Epstein, Hans Halt, and Andy Heglund at the Reno Jazz Festival backing up Avishai Cohen. Looking forward to returning to New York next month!
I'm really looking forward to playing with my trio at the beautiful Franklin Park Arts Center in Purcellville, VA on February 15. Adam Coté will be joining me on bass and Billy Drummond will be on the drums. We're also doing a clinic at Shenandoah University on February 14 at 12:30.
If you live in DC or know anyone who does, spread the word! Tickets and more info can be found at http://www.franklinparkartscenter.org
I'm very honored that Meridies made Downbeat Magazine's Best of the Year list for 2012! Thanks again to Clark Sommers, Noah Preminger, and Mark Ferber for playing so great and to John Bishop and Terri Hinte for their support. If you haven't checked it out yet, you can download it for only $1.99 until the end of the month.
Thanks to everyone for their support of the record this year! We got a great review in Downbeat this month and are looking forward to making more music in the year ahead.
