Recently and upcoming

Whoops... it's been nearly a month since I updated my "updated regularly" news page!

Recently I workshopped my Third String Quartet with the Greenway Quartet, a terrific young group. I gained some insights into revising the piece further before it's tackled by the Tankstream Quartet (now the Australian String Quartet) who commissioned it.

The premiere of The Last Signal was a great success.

I'm currently practising my Preludes Book II for a demo recording I will make in my home on June 1.

On June 14 I leave for Los Angeles where I will record my new CD of original jazz pieces at the famed Capitol Studios, Hollywood with an amazing team consisting of saxophonists Steve Tavaglione and Bob Sheppard, guitarist James Muller, bassist Jay Anderson (who will travel especially from New York), legendary drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and recording engineer Bernie Kirsh whose work I have been listening to on Chick Corea CDs since the mid 70s.
