Hi everyone!

A (very) belated thank you to everyone who came out to the Dakota on January 21 to hear the Trio. It was a fun event for us, and I hope you enjoyed it! Audio from this event can be downloaded here.

Since then, I’ve had a busy two months. The Dakota Combo was in New York on February 19 and 20 for the Mingus High School Competition. We played three tunes: So Long Eric, Orange Was the Color of Her Dress, and Reincarnation of a Lovebird. We had a great time, and won the Mingus Spirit Award! Thanks to the Manhattan School of Music for their hospitality.

Lastly, my next performance is on Thursday, March 24 at 8:00 pm in Antonello Hall at MacPhail Center for Music. This is part of MacPhail’s Jazz Thursdays series. I am not playing in the entire concert, but I am sitting in with the band on one tune. I hope to see you there!
