I'm excited to have the opportunity to perform four concerts in the next two months with my Present Past ensemble, which celebrates the music of Canadian jazz icon Kenny Wheeler. This group features the amazing Jon Bentley on soprano and tenor saxophone and the fabulous Tristan Paxton on guitar, along with yours truly on bass. The repertoire is mostly drawn from Wheeler's nearly 4-decade-long recording career, but also features a few obscure gems, as well as some of my original pieces directly inspired by Wheeler's music. Our first show is this Sunday at Frankie's. Please come by and say hello! Check out the performances page for more info.

This weekend! It's going to be a pleasure to share the stage at Frankie's with the incredible New York-based guitarist Peter Bernstein. This legendary musician has been on the international jazz scene since 1989 and has performed with many jazz luminaries, including Sonny Rollins, Jim Hall, Bobby Hutcherson, Lee Konitz, Brad Mehldau, and many more. This is sure to be a swinging affair. With the fabulous Tilden Webb - piano, and Jesse Cahill - drums. For more info, go to:
