New Year

The flute piece is finished, it's a Sonatine.

I'm currently writing for a brilliant Australian classical trumpet player based in New York for his Masters recital at Julliard in May. His name is Brent Grapes and I plan to be there for the rehearsals and premiere. It's a piece for trumpet and chamber ensemble.

Meantime I'm getting ready for the release of the Resurgence Band CD Tell It Like It Is on ABC Jazz May 2 followed by a national tour.

Dates for the tour are:

Sat May 16 Brisbane Valley Jazz Festival (CD launch)
Sun May 17 Melbourne Bennetts Lane Jazz Lab (CD launch)
Wed May 20 Sydney Factory Theatre (CD launch)
Fri May 22 Adelaide The Promethean
Sat May 23 Perth The Ellington Jazz Club
Tues May 26 Albany WA Albany Town Hall
Wed May 27 Mandurah WA Mandurah Performing Arts Centre
