Hope you might be able to come to one of these….
Hi there! Carnegie Hall was SO much fun. The piano was in excellent shape, the acoustics in Mrs. Carnegie’s former “salon” are perfect, and there was a really warm and enthusiastic audience to the new music from DAY & NIGHT. So many people braved the chilly 20 degrees to come out – many of them friends – and we had a really great time. There are a few more performance dates – if you missed the Carnegie show, (or […]
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Happy New Year! I hope you had some good times over this holiday season. It’s been busy but fun for me in SoCal.

IMG_6008_FINAL Hi There, Hope you had a nice weekend. I did a big 2 hour bike ride on the beach – so fun! Back to work today! I’m getting really excited about my upcoming performances – practicing away has been a lot of fun, but of course that’s what pianists enjoy doing! I really like the music a lot, and I hope everyone else will too. Here are the dates and times again – PLEASE pass the information to any […]
THANK YOU TO RADIO EVERYWHERE!
Hi There! Did you enjoy the SuperBowl? I think it’s always more fun to have a closer game – like last year, but the weather in California was spectacular for a February day and I liked GaGa’s arrangement of our anthem too. Here’s a photo from NYC last month with JD Allen on tenor sax, Ben Williams on bass, Ingrid Jensen on trumpet and Rudy Royston on drums at Carnegie Hall. We had a great time! We had the same […]
Happy January 22nd – our Official Release Day! We are very excited today! For us the release of NOCTURNAL represents months of creative passion, HOURS of rapt attention to detail, and two days of recording bliss. Truly the best band ever: Antonio Sanchez on drums (well known for his Birdman score), once again the deep Detroit tenor sax sound of JD Allen and the Julliard trained Gregg August on bass, and the addition of the virtuosic Terell Stafford on trumpet, […]
