Great evening of music on May 26 starting at 8:30.
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.
I had a great time teaching, performing and judging at the GDS Jazz Festival. Really beautiful performance at the end with Aaron Quinn, Brad Linde and Nadje Noordhuis. Georgetown Day School Jazz Festival
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.
Here is a teaser video for the upcoming releases.
I'm a total ICP Orchestra fan. If you're around Baltimore you should def. be there.
It was great to be included in Drum Magazines 2014 Drummies Artist Awards.
