This is a band that I’ve been performing with for 10 years! Interpreting standards and playing arrangements and compositions inspired by standards. 4 CDs with our fifth due out next summer, 9 tours of Japan as well as other performances in Asia, Europe, the U.K. and around the United States and we’re still going strong!

It’s a 3-day weekend spectacular at Smoke. Smoke is one of New York’s best jazz clubs, a beautiful intimate atmosphere to hear some of the today’s top jazz groups with excellent food. Should be a great weekend and I hope you can be there with us.

Sets are 7, 9 and 10:30 on all three nights. For the first two sets, a dinner reservation is required. Please visit their website for more information:
