June performances and recording

I've been lying low for a while and practising hard at the piano toward my June performances and recording. Lennie Tristano has been as inspiration for linear fluency, Eckhart Tolle for spiritual nourishment. Given up coffee and taken up the treadmill for exercise again.

The Resurgence Band is playing at the Sound Lounge in Sydney on Saturday June 19 and 26. On June 28 we go into Studios 301 to record a new CD, a whole new repertoire of songs which we will play at the gigs.

I am also doing trio performances on Friday June 18 at 505 in Sydney and Sunday June 20 at Bennetts Lane in Melbourne.

I've also had a chance to share some time with a couple of jazz masters like Dale Barlow and Chuck Yates, just playing together for the spirit of it. What a wonderful antidote to some of the inevitable loneliness in these kinds of periods.
