Summer has arrived here in NYC in full force, and it's been an exciting first few weeks for me.

I spent two weeks in West Palm Beach Florida with Juilliard Jazz teaching at their Summer Jazz Camp at the Oxbridge Academy. It's always inspiring to spend time with enthusiastic young musicians who want to learn about jazz! Thanks to Mr. Cleve Maloon and Oxbridge Academy for being such great hosts! Hope to make it back to work with the students again next summer!

The following week brought two performances at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, it was great to make it back to perform for the hometown crowd!

As for the coming weeks, I'll be back at the Bar Next Door with my trio on Monday July 22nd featuring Clovis Nicolas and Bryan Carter - 630PM. Tuesday July 30th at Smalls with Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet - 10PM.

I'm very excited to be making my first trip to Argentina for the Trombonanza festival in Santa Fe! Looking forward to working with trombonists from all over the world!

Back at the Bar Next Door on Monday August 29th - 630PM!

Hope to see you around!
