Wrapped up yet another school year and looking forward to a productive summer (practice and write!). Congrats to my graduating seniors Derrick Dymalski, Sam Hart, Joey Rosin, and Jonovan Sackey, also graduate students Paul Roth and Kyle Moreen. As I write this I am sitting at the Hit Factory Studios with John Daversa listening to Derrick, Paul, Joey, and fellow CJB members Tom Kelley and Chris Thompson Taylor put the finishing touches on the band’s new album. Very special music, both delicate and romping. Stay tuned for info on the release.
Later on this summer Sam Hart and two more Frost students Kayla Schwarz and Kyle Swan will be joining me for the IASJ summer workshop in Siena Italy. It will be a very fun week!
Recording next week with the South Florida Jazz Orchestra wrapping both our “albums in progress”, the music of Rick Margitza and the music of Gary Lindsay. 10-12 charts in two sessions. Old friends John Fedchock, Jason Carter, Greg Gisbert, and other South Florida “alums” will be joining us for this recording.
