As fall cools off things are heating up for the March 2014 release of my new project “MEMOIR” with John DiMartino, piano, Martin Wind, bass, Greg Sergo drums, Russell Malone, guitar, and Warren Vache, cornet …and vocals! Warren & I had many laughs recording a couple of vocal duets and the musicians swing like crazy. Gary Walker of WBGO wrote the liner notes for the CD and I look forward to joining him and company at the station this spring.
We’re currently scheduling tour dates and will keep you posted as more are confirmed. At the South Florida kick off concert March 26,2014, Tennessee Williams Cabaret Theater in Key West, I’ll be joined by my friend, acclaimed Chicago pianist Jeremy Kahn, with a special cameo appearance by Bobby Nesbitt. www.keystix.com.
New Yorkers please save this date! May 7 at Kitano New York. My recording cohorts, John DiMartino and Warren Vache will be with me and much fun, musical and otherwise, is assured. www.kitano.com
Cant wait to share the new music with you!
