On The Road - January 2011
I'm headed on a tour of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba imminently with trumpeter/composer/swell guy Dean McNeill and an ensemble consisting of many of Western Canada's finest Jazz artists. We'll be performing music from the seminal album "Art Pepper+11" and newly commissioned compositions and arrangements written by members of the band specifically for this tour.
