3/21/19 – This Saturday 3/23, I’ll be performing with my good friends, HOCKET, at Boston Court in Pasadena along with my LA Signal Lab cohorts.  The program consists of work by composer/performers Sarah Gibson, Thomas Kotcheff, Derek Tywoniuk, Andy Akiho, Noah Meites, and Hitomi Oba, and also includes a movement of my piece, “Voyagers.” On April 5th, I’m excited to be performing in Boise, ID with the Hitomi Oba Group for the Gene Harris Jazz Festival.  I’ll also be adjudicating the festival and performing in the Gene Harris Festival Orchestra.


11/21/18 – I’m out on the road again with the incredible Brian Setzer and his orchestra for a nice run throughout the states.  Some other cool stuff has been happening – earlier this year I worked with David Norland on his score for HBO’s “My Dinner with Herve,” which premiered last month; I was deeply honored to co-produce James Newton’s outstanding new album of chamber music, “The Manual of Light,” available on November 30; and I’ve been working on a 3-song EP of my big band music for release in early 2019.

6/11/18 – Prepping to head out on the road again with the Billy Vaughn Orchestra in a few weeks with some great friends and musicians.  But before that, Sensus: Sol is going down at the Terrell Garden in Long Beach, California, on June 22nd and 23rd.  Go to the Sensus website for more details and to make a reservation.  And some new big band charts are in the works for Pianist/Composer Jon Jang.  I am honored and excited to be working with him!

10-19-17 – I’m finishing up my part on few heavy projects before heading out on the road again with the Brian Setzer OrchestraL.A. Signal Lab has been in the studio with HOCKET and Aperture Duo recording our new album, “Water and Power,” slated for release early next year.  I’ve also been working with David Norland on music for an upcoming HBO film, and doing a number of interesting projects with Kathryn Bostic, including an arrangement of her beautiful song “State of Grace,” to be performed by the Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra in January.  Last but definitely not least, L.A. Signal Lab will perform a program of works (including my “Aqua Corelli”) at L.A. Philharmonic’s “Noon to Midnight” day of new music at Walt Disney Concert Hall on November 18th.  Though I won’t be able to attend (I’ll be on the road), I’ll be there in spirit – and I know that my cohorts are going to kill it!


2-22-17 – Just finished a short but fun run in Niagara Falls, ON with “Man In The Mirror,” getting a chance to play in a horn section with two of my best friends, Tom Terrell (trumpet) and Remy LeBouef (sax).   Up next – producing a new album of Chinese folk music in the American blues style with another of my closest friends, Ross Garren.  Last but not least, two films I scored, one feature-length and one short, are in the final phases of post production.  Both were directed by Casey De Fremery and should be released quite soon.
