September 5: Beyond Group on Zoom

We had a beautiful time on Sunday, September 5 listening and exchanging ideas in Beyond Group. Of course it was a huge treat and honor to hear and play with one of my favorite saxophonists, Joe Lovano.

City Artist Corp grant, Individuation 3

I'm very excited to return to the Bunker Studio in Brooklyn to record my third album with Individuation!  This album will feature three amazing artists who fans of post 1960s modern jazz will appreciate, playing all original compositions.  This is all possible thanks to a grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts, which I am deeply grateful to receive!

New solo saxophone album! The Middle Passage, out now!

One of my ongoing ideas has been to create a "label" that organizes and publishes my material under one name. Starting this month and going forward, Dialogical Records will release material from me as a leader or under my own name, especially for my Individuation ensemble. My first release is The Middle Passage, tentatively this Tuesday, July 6, 2021. A Bandcamp page for the label is forthcoming. Thank you as always for all your support and interest in my music!

The Covid-19 era was one of austerity and limitations for musicians and artists throughout the United States (and the planet).  Though I have virtually finished music for another Individuation album, contemporary events initiated a detour and change in direction.  I spent most of 2020 and now 2021 fruitfully engaged in free improvisation with friends and colleagues, especially online.  After being inspired by a number of artists, and particularly David Liebman's practice of artistically commemorating life passages, I felt the time had come to record not only a solo saxophone document but to start my own record label.  So, my latest recording, The Middle Passage, marks my 40th birthday.
