NY Trumpet Ensemble

2 weeks ago, the ny trumpet ensemble went into the studio to attempt to document some of the music we've been making recently. we came out with some of the most unique juxtapositions of sounds i've ever heard and a lot of incredible music. we have 2 shows coming up, one on august 7th and another on the 10th. the show on the 7th will be in williamsburgh, and the show on the 10th is part of the second annual trumpet festival put together by dave douglass and tonic. our fearless (and old) leader, mark gould, will be absent from the show on the 7th, but pianist mike gallope will be joining peter evans, cj camarari and myself for that performance. more details as i become more aware of them myself.

Upcoming shows

on saturday the 24th, i'll be playing with the evan wilson quartet at the mill city gallery in Providence, RI at 9 PM. later next week, i'll be at the Cornelia st. cafe with the charle evans quartet playing a set of charle's music and a few standards. the band will feature peter evans on trumpet and eli hludzik on drums. the gig is part of a democratic party fund-raiser, so come out for a night of great jazz!!!!
