I just got back from Boston, MA where I visited the Vic Firth offices. They're celebrating 50 years and working on a ton of new products. You can see all the excitement at http://vicfirth.com
Next week I head to Lexington, Kentucky where I will serve as the music director for their first annual, "University Idol". This event will feature singers vying to win a $1500 cash prize and a years worth of bragging rights! The event also benefits cancer research. While I'm at UK I will also be conducting clinics and private lessons. I head from Kentucky to Wisconsin to perform as a guest artists with Badger High School and later that week the NIU Jazz Ensemble.
I'm also excited to be working alongside my father in Memphis, TN and Jonsboro, AK.
I'll return to NYC to finish off the last five gigs for JALC's Jazz for Young People on Tour Program and for a few gigs with Charlie Rosen Big Band, Emmet Cohen, Keelan Dimick and Benny Bennack.
In June I head back out with GRAMMY Winner Kurt Elling.
Be Blessed & Stay Enchanted!
