it's time for news!
I am continuing to curate a new music series for two pianos... after the first concert with Shoko Nagai and the good success and fun we had, I am really excited to have the second concert of the series happening soon and being able to play again with two pianos. so here are the details...
Brooklyn Music For Two Pianos Concert Series.2 continues in late january!!! !!
I have the pleasure this time to have pianist and composer Angelica Sanchez joining me to continue with the series. she is an amazing improviser and very active in the avant-garde scene since she moved to NYC back in 1994. we'll be starting our set at 8:30pm on Friday Jan 25th. I will be curating this at iBeam monthly or every other month... so please stay tuned! also, if you happen to be a pianist feel free to contact me via email if you would like to join at future concerts. the more, the merrier.
-big thanks to Brian Drye at iBeam for accepting the challenge and kindly supporting my initiative from the start-.
also, in the new year I will be going into the studio with my Trio in late January at Oktaven studios in Fordham, NY. thrilled to make it happen and record new music. I am making this recording with Drew Gress on bass and Devin Gray on drums. Jeremy Loucas will be in charge of the sound again this time... really looking forward to this!
later in february my friend and bassist Masa Kamaguchi based in Barcelona will be in NYC after a year... I'm excited to play with him again! I am thrilled this time the amazing drummer Gerald Cleaver will be joining us for our set.
