Writing

Hi all, It feels good to be a little more active in blog posting, so thank you to any of you that have checked out what I’ve been writing the past couple of months! Polyrhythmics recently finished several days writing new music together, which is always very exciting.  Last time around, I had a few […]

April Excitement

I had a nice excursion North to Bellingham the last couple of days; Theoretics had a solid first Bellingham show at the Wild Buffalo, and I was able to spend the following day with Karl, drummer for the band Polecat, who the Polyrhythmics have shared bills and festivals with pretty frequently.  It was good to […]

Summer Recap

  Another eventful summer is coming to a close; in many ways this one was an extension of the tours, trips, and festivals that I really began to experience last year, and yet at the same time I could feel my “adult” life begin in Seattle.  I’ve become (slightly) more organized with my teaching schedule, […]

New Photos Up

I added a new gallery of photos taken from Hardcoretet’s performance at Central Washington University.  The show was after an evening clinic/master class with some of the music students there, our second one at CWU, and the reception was very warm and enthusiastic.

Festival performances with the Polyrhythmics and Theoretics have been really fun, especially because I hadn’t really gone to many music festivals before, either as an audience member […]

The Polyrhythmics debut album will be released next week, with some fun festival work coming up this Spring/Summer. […]

Slumgum/Post lengths

  This past weekend the group Slumgum came to Seattle as part of their album release tour.  Slumgum is a quartet that plays a blend of free and composed elements that give them a really individual sound, sometimes delicate and other times in your face, sometimes long waves of sounds and other times precise rhythms, sometimes loose improvisations and […]

Earshot

So the Earshot Jazz Festival is about halfway over.  The Seattle Times talked about it a bit , as did Lucas Gillan of Accujazz and Jason Parker from One Working Musician. As with every year, I am impressed with the diverse schedule of music and film, and several of the musicians in particular have been hype-worthy for […]
