Rambling Upon The Tail End of Summer

After a Summer largely spent away from the public eye I’m returning with a series of performances, the first of which is a particularly exceptional occasion. Please come celebrate the extraordinary gift Dave Rempis has bestowed upon improvising musicians and our audience here in Chicago for the last 20+ years on August 31st at Elastic Arts, his final night as head honcho of the Improvised Music Series. Our quartet, also featuring Joshua Abrams and Jason Adasiewicz, will be performing two sets. This series helped to introduce me as an improviser to Chicago years before I moved here and I cannot overstate the impact it has had on my life here, and generally, as a musician and as a listener. Thank you, Dave!

I am also excited to be back on the road again in trio with Eli Winter and Sam Wagster for a mostly Eastern US outing from September 5th-September 17th. We will have some new pieces in the mix…please make it out if you can – dates below:
