In concert with Laila Biali & Peter Eldridge…
When friend and vocal goddess Laila Biali called me a few months ago asking about my interest & availability to be the special guest on a series of concerts she & singer extraordinaire Peter Eldridge were planning, I immediately told her “I’ll make myself available.” I’m thrilled to not only perform with these incredible musicians, but to do so at these historic venues: New York City’s Birdland on October 8th & Boston’s Sculler’s Jazz Club on October 21st. Hope to see you there!
Other autumn activities…
In addition to my collaborations with these folks, I’m looking forward to an autumn of reunions & debuts. Highlights include the release of composer/arranger Miho Hazama’s 2nd CD “Time River,” the premiere of bassist Mary Ann McSweeney’s jazz fado project, the recording of vocalist Luba Mason’s next album, & a month-long European tour with clarinetist David Krakauer in support of his album “The Big Picture”. Let the adventures begin!
