Last week, I released Sound Plan, my latest full length instrumental Jazz album. Thank you all who have given it a listen! For those who haven't yet, the music combines Jazz with Psychedelic Rock and Electronic Dance Music (EDM). It is available to stream and download on my music page. The release show will be on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at World Café Live (upstairs).
November is otherwise full of performance preparation - much arranging and rehearsing. Friday's Back to Black: Philly Tribute to Amy Winehouse sold out last week! Not to worry, I'm performing with my own band as well as other artists in November:
