Had a great time playing at Revival 1869 last Friday with Kevin Beardsley and Kassem Williams. I’m calling that particulat incarnation the ‘Work Trio’. We played soul and funk covers with a jazzy twist, lots of Sco, some Jill Scott, Sam Cooke etc., it was fun and I hope to play more with this group soon!
On May 7th at Arcana in Durham we will do the release show for the new Out and Gone records, including my ‘Bag of Tricks vol 3’. James Gilmore FreeTet will be Chris Sharp, Paul Rogers and Daniel Hall.
May 18th I’m excited and honored to be playing with the amazing singer/ songwriter Rissi Palmer at Artsplosure 2019 in Raleigh. Details on her site.
May 2, 16 and 30, and every other Thursday, I’m at Kau in Greensboro with a rotating cast of bass players.
‘Bag of Tricks vol 3’ is out March 20 on Out and Gone Music along with new music from Polyorchard. This is the last recording from a series of improv shows in Raleigh at the beginning of 2017. Click on ‘Music‘ for links to Bandcamp.
