OK. Maybe I’m rushing it just a bit since it’s not quite Thanksgiving, but you really should start thinking about what music you plan to play for your family and friends this holiday season. I’ve got an excellent recommendation! Me!
I released A TRI-FI Christmas last year with my trio, TRI-FI – just in time for the holidays. This album is a collection of holiday classics done up in a creative, modern jazz trio way. You can listen right here on my site.
Available on the TRI-Fi website as CD, digital download or even HD audio!
Note: The digital downloads on TRI-FI.com are CD quality – so much better than what you’ll find on iTunes.

I’m off to Denmark next weekend with my trio, TRI-FI. We’ve been invited to perform at the European Double-Bass Convention. In addition to our performance at the festival we will be playing a few other fun shows while we’re there:
- Jazz Club Dexter in Odense (Thurs 16 Aug)
- A couple after-hours concerts at Jazz House in Copenhagen (Fri/Sat 17-18 Aug)
- Master-class for Jazz Denmark (Sat 18 Aug)
I’m very excited to be heading to Europe with this trio for the first time! And I’m looking forward to sharing our original music with a few new audiences.

The Guardian in England just gave a nice review of a performance I did with Curtis Stigers. In it John Fordham offers one of the best pull-quotes I’ve ever been able to share.
“Stigers’s backing musicians looked like a convention of accountants, but they delivered a blues and mainstream-swing accompaniment with engaging zest…”

Neil Tesser has said some nice things about me before in reviews of my work with Curtis Stigers, and even the occasional nice thing to me face to face (you know that’s a joke if you’ve ever met him). In his list of Yuletide Jazz CDs he includes A TRI-FI Christmas and has this to say:
