PEOPLE!

Catharsis will be celebrating the upcoming release of our debut record, Music is Emotion, in performance at the Jazz Gallery on Dec. 6th. I really hope to see you there. This project is truly a culmination of everything I’ve played, listened to, experienced, learned over the last 13 years here in NYC playing with masters of many different styles.

Also, super excited to be making my debut on the PIANO with one of my favorite vocalists and composers, Nedelle Torrisi on Nov. 13th at Glasslands and Nov. 15th at Pianos (Catharsis will open for Nedelle on this gig). Piano is one of my first instruments and I’ve been making a conscious effort to bring it back into my musical life (beyond the composing and teaching I use it for).

Other notable upcoming gigs include the Miguel Zenon Big Band at Lafeyette College on Nov. 14th, and, as usual, look for me at the Jazz Standard Thanksgiving week with Maria Schneider.
