During March, I will play concerts in both London and Paris!
March 15th, 8pm @ La Bellevilloise, Paris
March 28th, Jazz Refreshed @ Mau Mau Bar, London
Also, I am excited to be teaching a workshop titled “The New Sounds Fundamental,” March 27th, 7pm, at the Midi Music Company:
“In contemporary music, the dominant style has disappeared, with borrowing
across genres becoming the signiﬁcant trend. As in one of the most
important developments, ‘sampling,’ there has been a cross-pollination, infusing the musical landscape with sounds both current and past. Of course, this has
always been the case, as musicians throughout history expanded on the
developments of their predecessors.
I will discuss and express through performance, techniques that I have used
to integrate formal music training and contemporary ‘urban’ styles.
Approaching the sounds of today with knowledge of the fundamentals and
tradition, we can playfully explore ways to improve the quality of our own
music and advance the artistic integrity for future generations.”
