June 2016: DC and Boston

Here’s my music update for June 2016, featuring performances with some of my favorite people at favorite venues. In addition, I’ll be spending a week in Boston at the end of the month, as a student at the Berklee Summer Songwriting Workshop.
I’m looking forward to learning from their excellent faculty and the other participants. This is not specifically a “jazz” workshop, so it will be particularly exciting to learn about a much broader range of styles than I’m used to.

February 2016 update

Here’s my performance update for February 2016. As I noted in the update, I was honored this month to contribute a musical theme for Darwyn Dave’s new podcast “Dealing With My Grief.” Darwyn is a talented photographer who is actively documenting the DC jazz scene. I’ve benefited from many performance photos he has produced, and was more than happy to return the favor with this short composition:

Love All Year on video

To celebrate the holidays and the release of the holiday album from Aaron Myers, Snowing In Vegas, here’s a video for Aaron’s new holiday song “Love All Year.”

I listened to this tens of times while making the video, and it just doesn’t get old. It’s a beautiful song that I hope will take its rightful place in the library of American holiday classics.

Enjoy!

“Snowing In Vegas” now on Spotify!

The Aaron Myers holiday album “Snowing In Vegas” is now available on Spotify. The album features Aaron’s new holiday classic “Love All Year, three of my original compositions (“Hanukkah Light”, “Snow Day”, and “Stand Right”) plus the fun original title tune “It’s Snowing In Vegas”. Enjoy!
