Great times in Paris…next: Bern and Zurich Switzerland!

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”

A perfect summation of the City of Light by Ernest Hemingway.  I haven’t lived in Paris but my time here will certainly stay with me.  What a beautiful place full of amazing people.  I’ll upload some pictures when I get a faster internet connection.

Today we head to Bern, Switzerland for the Jazzwerkstatt Festival.  Im insanely excited to hear this new music.  After working on something for so long its always rewarding to hear it come to life.  We have three rehearsals this week then the festival set on Friday.  We are recording it and I’m looking forward to sharing it with everyone.

Next week, Jeff Harshbarger and I head to Zurich for a few days.  We’ll be hanging with innovative drummer Simon Berz for a few days and playing gigs on Monday and Tuesday.  Monday (2/25) we will be performing at Cafe Fur Dich and Tuesday (2/26) at IOIC.

We’ll be back home next week.  March, April, and May are gong to be very busy.  Lots and lots of stuff happening!  I’ll be curating a wonderful series at Tulsa’s Dwelling Spaces.  Check the Tour Dates area for more info.  Keep your ears to the ground for a new duo project from Josh Raymer and I.  We’ll be debuting it in the Tulsa area in April and then taking it down to New Orleans for Jazzfest in April/May.
