December at a Glance…
This month is filled with some very cool gigs that I’m pretty excited about. There’s a few dates with the wonderful Col Bruce Hampton…which as we all know is always full of surprises. Who knows what he’ll introduce me as this time (last time I was Jake Belushi). on the 13th and 14th I’ll be at Churchill Grounds with a collective of Atlanta’s finest jazz musicians performing the Oliver Nelson classic recording “Blues and the Abstract Truth”. I heard about this record from my good friend years ago and one day I finally got to it on my “to listen to” list. It’s a great record…so if you haven’t checked it out do so!
I also look forward to performing with Grant Green Jr at Terminal West in Atlanta on the 22nd. Grant’s new record “The Big-Bang-Boom” will be out sometime in the Spring of 2014 (which I also play on a track or two).
See you around the South! Check out the Shows page for the most up-to-date info.
Jonah Smith Tour
I just finished a wonderful tour with an LA-based songwriter Jonah Smith. He’s easily one of my favorite songwriters out there today and we had such a blast playing for audiences in Knoxville TN, Nashville TN, Chattanooga TN, Atlanta GA and others. I know we’ll be touring again through the South and elsewhere in 2014…so make sure you check back here for announcements on those dates as they materialize. You can check out Jonah’s work and schedule at www.jonahsmith.com (and I highly encourage it).
