Check out Audrey Bernstein and her new group, we cut the CD in May and have been playing steadily since.

I’m currently listening to Sons of Daughters, a great trio comprised of tenor, bass and drums. Three improv masters who read each others musical intentions and moves like a book. Saxophonist Patrick Breiner is hopefully coming to VT in February…trying to help him book some gigs…






Duo dates this week

Playing with guitarists Matt Harpster and Greg Evans at Bagitos on Friday at 6 and Saturday at Red Hen at 1.

Come down for some gypsy/swing/latin muisc.




Excited to play at the Ski Hall of Fame 2011 induction at Killington Resort later this month!

Ticketed event featuring a dinner and silent auction. I have been a skier all of my life, so it will be exciting to be at this event, especially since our founding member of ZJazz is a member of the HOF as well.
