Looking forward to performing with two giants of music this year.
Lisa Fischeris an incredible “real deal” Grammy Award winning singer, recently featured in the documentary “20 Feet From Stardom” which won an Oscar, and is just about the most soulful woman I’ve ever met. We have a few shows this Spring, and later in the Summer and Fall things will heat up with more touring. Select dates below:
April 19th – Payomet Performing Arts Center – Provincetown, MA http://www.payomet.org/artist/lisa-fischer
Fred Herschis a Jazz pianist in an exceptional class of his own. Unique, influential, and masterly, Fred delivers a highly personal story as a composer and player of the piano. I am completely humbled to be playing with this giant of improvised music. We’ll be playing this summer:
Very happy to announce that I surpassed my Indiegogo goal with a total of $6,125 funds raised!
THANKS to all the support from the contributors! I couldn’t have done it without you.
All funds raised from this project will go directly to the creation and completion of my debut album.
Great to be back in New York after another solid tour overseas with Melody Gardot. NYC dates to follow below, as well as a tour photo slideshow.
Life constantly gets deeper and never ceases to educate me in the most unexpected ways…
This was one of the more beautiful tours I have been fortunate to be a part of. Lots of travel highlights, and the music was fun too. I also got to see and hang out with some musical heros at various festivals like Anthony Jackson, Larry Grenadier, Mark Turner, Steve Smith, Danilo Perez etc. Running into musicians of this caliber is one of the great perks of being on the road sometimes! At this point, Melody Gardot will be working on a new record throughout the Fall season, so stay tuned for news on that front in the coming months. Also be sure to check back as I will be posting more from my Smalls show, and updating my performance schedule.
Writing from Istanbul, Turkey where we have a day off today. Tomorrow we play the Jazz Fest here. We had three great beginning shows to the tour in France with Melody Gardot, and are very close to adding a new song to the set and the music is feeling very inspired all around! Stay tuned…
Check out this live cut from my Quartet’s most recent show at Smalls Jazz Club:
Summer Tour Dates with Melody Gardot have now been posted on the site in the “Performances” section! I will have many first visits on this tour as I did on the last one. Looking forward to going to Italy, Sweden, Finland, Turkey, Belgium and more for my first time. We’ll also be playing some really nice festivals like Juan Les Pins (where Miles played!), Love Supreme Festival, & Vitoria Jazz Fest to name a few.
Here are some videos with one of my favorite people and musicians Camila Meza, el guitarrista from Chili. This footage comes from our show at Smalls back in February and features Aaron Goldberg, Greg Hutchinson, and myself. As always I am honored to have played with musicians of this caliber, and felt I learned so much just from the couple of shows we all did together. Enjoy, and don’t forget to check us out at Cornelia St. Cafe on June 18th.
