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 9.12.21

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 8.11.21

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 […]

New Tune — Friday Feeling

I’m home from work early and pleased to release my new tune for this week, Friday Feeling. It’s a dancy little number for you weekend pleasures and features soprano saxophone melodies, harmonized by sequencers, and big electronic beats. It’s available on Bandcamp for a buck, like most of my tunes. Listening is free but purchases […]

New Tune — Ataraxia

This Friday’s tune is a bit different from the things I’ve been releasing lately. It’s a darker sort of mood tune, as opposed to the big dancy sort of beats I’ve been putting out lately. I’ve been really digging the music of trumpeter/composer Jon Hassell lately and wanted to dabble a bit in that sonic […]

New Tune — Southern Cross

Here’s the next tune in my Friday releases series. I’m doing a new one each week. This one is full of soprano saxophones, synthesizers, and spacey electronic beats. What’s not to love?

New Tune — Mindstream

Mindstream is built around a slowed down montuno, played on the vibraphone, with a heavy dub beat and a haunting soprano saxophone melody. There’s a brief moment of blisteringly quick bass clarinet and a spacey groove with soprano solo to the end.

New Tune — La Arrondissement à Nuit

I’m very happy to be releasing a new tune today called, La Arrondissement à Nuit. It’s a loose groove featuring two soprano saxophones playing the melody and a swaggering bari solo. Check it out here. As always, listening on Bandcamp is free but purchases are always appreciated. You can also follow me on Bandcamp to […]

Kaleidoscope EP

Yesterday I released three new tunes on an EP called Kaleidoscope. They’re meant to be groovy little things that you can put in your pocket and walk around with. The title refers to the construction of the tunes, which is largely short phrases that repeat and move around, much like a Kaleidoscope. The title of […]

New Recording — Castile Rose

Today I’m releasing a new work that I’ve written for soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, vibraphone, marimba, piano, and drums called Castile Rose. A work of unrelenting optimism, Castile Rose is loosely inspired by John Steinbeck’s novella, Tortilla Flat, where Danny and the paisanos pass many an afternoon on Danny’s porch, under the castile rose bush.
