Thank you to everyone who came out to the Jazz Gallery last week- we had a really great time playing for you. I have to say, the JG has become one of my favorite rooms to play in New York City. The sound on stage was very clear, and the experience with the audience felt intimate throughout both sets. Dan, Martin, and Jimmy all played beautifully and with such care; it was a real treat for me.
Included below is a live recording from the second set of one of my favorite standards- Harry Warren’s “I Wish I Knew”. We had only rehearsed my original music for the concert, and I sprung this song on the band just a few minutes before we started the gig. Having never played a standard together before, I was intrigued with how we’d approach it collectively. I hope you enjoy it!
I have some exciting concerts coming up this month, including Jonathan Ragonese‘s saxophone quintet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lucas Pino‘s No Net nonet at Smalls Jazz Club, Paul Jones‘ CD release at Cornelia Street Cafe, and a trio with Desmond White and Jochen Rueckert at The Bar Next Door on Thanksgiving. Please visit the Schedule for all dates and times. I’ll have a new food blog post coming shortly, as well.
Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you at an upcoming performance!
