Hello! I’m a clarinetist and saxophonist living in Brooklyn, New York. Please have a look around and feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org for gigs, teaching, or just to say “hey.”
Here’s what’s new in my world…
ON THE SUN Makes a Record!
My 8 piece R+B band ON THE SUN raised almost 20K via a kick-butt Kickstarter campaign (pun-intended) this summer, went into the studio for three days at the end of July, and now we’re in the final stages of mastering our new record! We could not be more excited to share it with you. Expect to see ON THE SUN’s new record for sale sometime in November!
One of our back-up singers Stephanie Layton is also an amazing designer and she did our album cover (at right). On a side note, I recently interviewed Stephanie as part of an interview series with freelance artists that I do as part of my other business Continuum Design + Web. You can view that interview with Stephanie HERE.
DIVA Jazz Orchestra at Dizzy’s This Fall!
The DIVA Jazz Orchestra led by Sherrie Maricle will be returning to Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola this fall for three consecutive nights. It’s been awhile since we’ve performed at our favorite jazz club in NYC – so we’re very excited! We’ll be performing sets at 7:30 and 9:30 PM on October 17th, 18th, and 19th with a guest vocalist to be announced. Find out more info and get tickets HERE.
The album cover you see at left is from when we recorded an album LIVE at Dizzy’s club in 2008. Says Nat Hentoff of this recording: “In this live set – at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center – the spirited interplay between the sections and the immediately distinctive soloists compel me to, as I used to years ago, shout aloud in pleasure.”
