Here are some cool things I have going on this month:
- Wednesday, November 8th - I'll be doing a concert for the Jazz Record Art Collective. For those that haven't been before this is an interesting series in a great "listening" space. The basic premise is to have local Chicago jazz artists re-imagine one of their favorite albums. I'll be joined by bassist Dennis Carroll and we'll be playing music from the album "Alone Together" by Jim Hall and Ron Carter. This is perhaps THE classic guitar/bass duet album, and the tunes and interplay on the record are amazing. The show is at the Fulton Street Collective and starts at 9pm. More Info →
- For those of you looking for something to do the day after Thanksgiving I'll be doing a duo concert with the fantastic pianist Jeremy Kahn at PianoForte, located at 1335 S. Michigan Ave. This is another great concert space where listening is the focus. More Info →
SAVE THE DATE: I'll be at Green Mill December 8/9 with guitar virtuoso Howard Alden and our quartet. We've got a bunch of new tunes picked out and it's always a blast to play with and listen to Howard!
Thanks to everyone who came to the Jazz Showcase last month for the release of my new duo CD "Lessons Lyrical" with vocalist Petra van Nuis. We got some great video footage from the gig and put up a really nice YouTube video featuring some highlights. Watch Video →
I'm lucky to have several great steady gigs at the moment:
Sundays - (every other Sunday) Trio at Winter's Jazz Club (11/5 with Doug Hayes and Joe Adamik, 11/9 with Dennis Carroll and Bob Rummage)
Tuesdays - Solo guitar at Cellars Bar and Grill
Wednesdays - Andy Brown quartet at Andy's Jazz Club with Jeremy Kahn, Joe Policastro and Phil Gratteau
Thursdays - Solo guitar behind the bar at the Green Mill (I won't be there 9/14. Guitarist Andy Pratt will be filling in for me)
All times, addresses, website info, phone numbers, as well as other gigs can be found on my schedule page.
Hope to see you!
