Ciao Tutti ! I am the worst blogger/news person, but here is to trying to communicate more! I just returned home from a beautiful European tour with The Tiptons Sax Quartet and Drums, where we played concerts in homes, theaters, old sawmills and scenic castles. We released two brand new CDs on this tour – one, a studio album called Cookbook, and two, a live album recorded with a 30-person choir in an ancient Abby near Salzburg, Austria. If you are interested in more information about either of these, just email me back here, and I’ll fill you in.
I am excited to be playing some shows with my Sephardic band, Sofie Salonika with Katie Down in Brooklyn this month, and am getting ready to go to New Orleans for Jazzfest to play with the amazing new project led by cellist Helen Gillet – Tephra Sounds! with myself on sax and flute, Helen Gillet on cello and voice, Brian Haas piano and rhodes, & the fabulous Nikki Glaspie on drums!
Sofie Salonika has some new videos up on the web – check them out!
