Mark Corroto over at All About Jazz gave A TRI-FI Christmas a glowing review saying it just might be “this year’s finest jazz Christmas offering.” Thanks for listening and for all the nice words. Just what I need to put me in the holiday spirit! Now where’s my eggnog?
Happy Holidays! Once again, in the spirit of the season I’ve got more music for you. This is my arrangement of the Nelson/Rollins classic “Frosty the Snowman.” After my last lead-sheet download I had a few specific requests for this particular arrangement – the first track from the new album “A TRI-FI CHRISTMAS.”
We took time out from our TRI-FI tour in Michigan this week to visit a rainy Christmas market. You know, there is nothing like a soggy Santa to really put you in the mood for the holidays! I thought this photo was just too great not to share. Being that it is December, this weekend […]

I’ve done a bit of musical work with the folks at Western Michigan University – a few concerts and clinics – and they’ve got a truly amazing program with a crop of really talented students. In this case I got to redesign their Jazz Department website. It’s another WordPress setup that has become an extensive […]
