In saying goodbye to 2013 there were many wonderful musical memories. There was the wonderful concert in August at Pritzger Pavillion with Jack DeJohnette, Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell and Henry Threadgill, with a great recording from it which promises to be released in the near future as the Special Editions Legends Group, a career high honor for me. There were many other wonderful musical connections, including a concert at Krannert with Ed Wilkerson and Avreaayl Ra, several great gigs with Paul Wertico and David Cain, gigs with Larry Coryell, a wonderful project where I played cello in the Crossing Borders concert at Pritzger led by two wonderful young trumpeters Victor Garcia and Ian Torres , a special concert with Paquito DeRivera, and of course my own trio with John Moulder and Charles Heath or Ernie Adams, along with many other great musical experiences in the tapestry that is Chicago. 2014 is off to a great start with a couple of gigs with Larry Coryell and Paul Wertico, a Quartet run at the Jazz Showcase with the extraordinary Benny Golson, along with collaborations with the great faculty at University of Illinois where I am teaching, with much more music to come this year. I hope you enjoy the website and that you will visit frequently.
