    Looking forward to playing with the fabulous
    Vicki Burns at the Zinc Bar from 7PM until 9PM
    on Monday, March 21st.  The band features Vicki
    on vocals, Leonard Thompson on piano, and
    Tom Hubbard on bass.  Zinc Bar is located at 82
    West 3rd Street (btwn Thompson and Sullivan
    in the West Village).

    Finally get to premiere my quartet on April 16th,
    featuring a mix of originals and standards.  The
    band features my good friends Jeff Newell on
    alto saxophone, Pete McCann on guitar, and
    Steve Whipple on bass.  We'll be performing at
    7:30PM in the gallery of Flushing Town Hall as
    part of the Queens Jazz OverGround's 2016
    Spring Jazz Fest.  Stay tuned for more info on
    this exciting event!

    I'll be playing both halves of a double bill with
    Bill Stevens and the OKB Trio at the Brooklyn
    Conservatory on Friday June 24th at 7PM.  Bill
    will be premiering his Chet Suite, dedicated to
    trumpeter Chet Baker in the first half, and the
    OKB Trio will do their "ing" in the second. Stay
    tuned for details.

    The OKB Trio is working feverishly to finish
    mixing and mastering our debut CD.  We'll post
    some tracks to the OKB Trio page soon to whet
    your appetite for our upcoming CD.  We were
    honored to lay down the first tracks ever
    recorded at Chris Benham's brand new studio,
    Big Orange Sheep!  We were very excited to
    bask in the warmth of the atmosphere created
    by our good friends Chris and Kevin Thomas and
    we look forward to sharing the music with you
    in the near future.
