I’m honored to be performing with my great friend and fellow musical adventurer, Ernie Durawa, and his band, DURAWA, this Tuesday, October 10th, 2017, 7:15pm at The Backstage at El Mercado in South Austin. Ernie has built the hottest show in town featuring the best rhythm section/band in town with a different special guest and style every week of the year. These guys play it all! I’ll be playing vibraphone and singing with this great group including Chris Alcaraz on bass, David Webb on piano, and the maestro, Mr. Durawa himself, on drums. We will perform some of my original songs as well as a selection of jazz and soul both old and new including my arrangements of some themes from the recent hit movie, La La Land. Many of the traditional jazz “standards” were taken from movie and broadway show soundtracks from the “golden age” of American songwriting in the 1920s and ‘30s. I’m trying to renew that practice in order to bring jazz to new audiences. Won’t you join us on Tuesday for a celebration of friendship and music?
