DIVA Jazz Orchestra Releases 25th Anniversary CD
In celebration of DIVA’s 25th anniversary of performing as a band (I’ve been with them 12 of those years – gasp!), we have released a record of ALL original compositions/arrangements by women in the band. If you’ve heard my album, then the second track of this new DIVA album will sound familiar – it’s an arrangement of my composition Middleground, which The New York Times calls “a folk-like lament.” Noriko co-arranged and orchestrated the piece for DIVA. It was a wonderful experience working with Noriko on this chart, and I couldn’t be more proud of DIVA’s new collection of music. You can purchase the new record HERE.
Featured Soloist with Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra
What a thrill it was to perform as one of the featured clarinetists in the production of Benny Goodman: King of Swing at Lincoln Center in NYC January 11-13, 2018.
You can watch a video of this entire performance on Youtube (link below). To skip to where I play in the above video, I am introduced at 1 minute 13 seconds into the video and then again at 1 hour 18 minutes into the video. Also featuring Anat Cohen, Ken Peplowski, Victor Goines, and Ted Nash on clarinet.
Thank you to everyone at JALC for being so warm and welcoming during this beyond fun gig.
