Bi-Weekly YouTube Vlog Started

I had been talking about starting a YouTube Vlog for a while.  I finally just gave in and started.  Right now we are doing day/ weeks in the life of a NYC Jazz Musician with some product reviews and lots of rehearsal/ performance footage.  I'm excited to see what this becomes.  You can find that here.

Movie Soundtrack Recording.  

I was super lucky to record a tune for the upcoming movie "Indignation".  Live studio orchestra with Jane Moheit singing, all in the same room.  Also a major plus was the request for a vintage kit with all calf skin heads.  Huge room, amazing orchestra, amazing singer, amazing sound.
