I’ve just arrived in DJBFA’s apartment, which is located at 19th street and 8th avenue on Manhattan, New York. Together with my friend, the saxophoneist Tomasz Licak, I’m going to listen to a lot of concerts and do a lot of sessions with my old friends from Manhattan School of Music.
Besides hanging around I’m also going to play a concert here in NYC, which at the same time is going to be recorded and maybe released at some point. The show in NYC is on December 11th at IBeam, Brooklyn at 9pm.
Ralph Alessi trumpet
Herb Robertson trumpet
Tony Malaby saxophone
Nasheet Waits drums
In the last weekend of my stay I’m going to Boston to play and record with some of the most important figures on the jazz scene today.
George Garzone saxophone
Jerry Bergonzi saxophone
Bob Moses drums
We are recording at Bob Moses place on the 15th and the day after, the 16th, we are playing a concert at the legendary Lily Pad, Boston, which has hosted The Fringe for over a decade. That concert is also going to be recorded, so I will have a lot of stuff to put out next year, but more about that later.
Hope everyone will have a great December!
