Happy New Year!

Friday, January 6, 2017

First off, happy New Year to all! All the best for 2017!

The year has already been busy for me! I just came out of 3 days of studio with the Orchestre National de Jazz de Montreal to record Christine Jensen's new 5 mouvement suite "Under the Influence".
Beautiful writing from Christine once again, stay tuned for the CD release somewhere later this year.

Also, on Saturday January 7th, I'll have the chance to re-unite with the one and only Dave Liebman, our last performance together dating about 16 months ago!
It will be at Diese Onze, 4115 St-Denis, Montreal, at 9pm and will also feature Fraser Hollins on bass and Martin Auguste on drums.

Later in March and April I'll be playing with special guests Dan Weiss and Ben Monder, stay tuned for more details!

We will also be releasing a new saxophone quartet recording featuring David Liebman, David Binney, Donny McCaslin and myself.
More information coming soon!

All the best and see you soon!
