New York

 MG 6456

 

 

I came back a few days ago, from a great trip to NYC. It was all about music, 200%, - a luxury that is not my everyday treat, given my two little turbo-sons! :-)   

I played a really fun concert with my quartet at An Die Musik in Baltimore, with John Ellis, Otis Brown III and Dan Tepfer. If NYC wasn't like coming home (underline the 'if') then this night was. When great musicians perform my music with such expression, richness and generosity, then I feel more at home than anywhere in the world. Thanks guys!

The BJU Ensemble then rehearsed a number of times. Unfortunately our gig on Sunday before the recording was cancelled, as the basement at Sycamore, where the weekly BJU concert series has been running for some years, has been shut down for music. We then went into the Bunker Studio on Wednesday June 12, to record a new collective album, and my feeling is this is something to look forward to. The recording went well and everyone's music - we each contributed with one 'normal' tune and one 'short' tune - was really greatly written and fit to the band. 

Then I also took care of some music business which I can tell you more about later. But for now, a nice week of great fun and great to see a lot of friends again.
