young jazzers

As a “getting older” jazz performer I find it necessary and revitalizing to work with several regional younger players (as in younger than 30!). How great to hear the different approaches, to help them gain new experiences, offer them a paid gig, and to learn of their musical influences. It has also kept my listening skills on a bit more contemporary level!

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas to all! I feel so fortunate, again, to be doing what I’m doing – practicing, rehearsing, preparing and performing great music with great people. Plus I get to teach at a wonderful place! Hey, and three gigs this coming week. Looking good. All the best to you and yours!
