This Week’s Shows 10.17.21

This week started out early, both in the year and the day for the Bent’s annual Christmas Opening. Christmas in October sounds a bit crazy to me but not for the droves of people coming in to see all of this years offerings at Bents. This was the same place where I played the fashion […]

This Week’s Shows 10.3.21

This week was a nice change of pace and an opportunity to put my clarinet on the back burner for a bit and focus on saxophone. I had two events, one a big corporate fashion show at Bents Garden Center, and the second a birthday party at a restaurant called Gorge. For the Bents fashion […]

This Week’s Shows 9.26.21

Two very different dates with the band this week. The first was an afternoon benefit performance in Altrincham for the Music Place, which is a community music education center for kids. It was held at a pretty interesting place called Stutter and Twitch. This record label/coffee shop/record shop/cocktail and beer spot has a little stage […]

This Week’s Shows 9.12.21

It’s been a busy week with three very different bookings…actually I should be getting ready to go to a fourth in Eccles at the moment but I had a last minute cancellation so here I am. On Wednesday, I played a corporate fundraiser for a mental health charity at the storied Midland Hotel. According to […]

This Week’s Shows 8.20.21

Two very different gigs this past week, The Welcome Back Festival in Warrington and a wedding in Altrincham. We played two different slots on two different stages at the Welcome Back Festival under the name Gypsies of Bohemia. The festival was designed to kick start high street businesses as we come out of lockdown and […]

This Week’s Shows 8.11.21

It feels like and has indeed been forever since I’ve posted one of these weekly roundups. Except for a handful of live performances here and there, the pandemic has pretty much put the kibosh on any kind of live music for me for well over a year now. I’m very grateful to say that it […]

Getz Variations — Dexter Morrill

Recently I’ve been working on a very interesting piece for tenor saxophone and fixed media by Dexter Morrill called “Getz Variations.” The piece was written for Stan Getz in 1984 and features samples of Stan himself playing in the audio track. The score has very little notated lines for the saxophonist to play, and instead […]

Goa Variations I

Those who know me personally know that I have a deep affinity for the music of Terry Riley, particularly his early compositions where he’s playing saxophone and/or keyboards. (Reed Streams, Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band, Shri Camel, Rainbow in Curved Air, Descending Moonshine Dervishes, etc.) Just today I’ve finished the first in a series […]

Hello 2020/2019 Wrap Up

Happy New Year all! Yes, I know it’s a bit late. I closed out 2019 with three rather big and very different gigs all within a week. It was a bit crazy and I logged a lot of miles, but it was fun. I played lead alto for a made-for-tv christmas special at the Beacon […]
