A Centering Peace

I’ll be releasing my third album as a leader on June 25, 2021.

 

A Centering Peace features nine new original compositions arranged for my sextet, with Michael Rodriguez on trumpet, Lisa Parrott on alto and soprano saxophones, Alan Ferber on trombone, Pete McCann on guitar, and Matt Clohesy on bass.  I wrote some lyrics too, so we’ll be joined by guest vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger on three of the tracks.

 

Please join us for a CD release party on Sunday, July 11 from 6:30pm-8pm at the Culture Lab LIC in the parking lot of the Plaxall Gallery.  The Gallery is located at  5-25 46th Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101.  The band will feature Duane Eubanks on trumpet, Hashem Assadullahi on alto and soprano saxophone, Alan Ferber on trombone, Pete McCann on guitar, Matt Clohesy on bass, and featured vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger.  We hope to see you there.  NYC will be open for business, but we’re outside anyway and seating in the lot is set up for social distancing, so there is no need to worry!
