This year, I’ll only be around for the first few days of the NO Jazz Fest. So… I guess I’ll be missing out on seeing all those “jazzy” folks like Widespread Panic and Snoop Dogg. I do, however, have two acoustic showcases on the Monday & Tuesday between the weekends…
Saturday, 28 April, 4pm: Fairgrounds – Tribute to Pete Fountain w/ Tim Laughlin (Economy Hall Stage)
Monday, 1 May: w/ Jon-Erik Kellso, Brian Seeger & Roland Guerin @ Little Gem Saloon (7pm Show)
7pm RSVP INFO
Monday, 1 May: w/ Jon-Erik Kellso, Brian Seeger & Roland Guerin @ Little Gem Saloon (9pm Show)
9pm RSVP INFO
Tuesday, 2 May: w/ Tom McDermott @The Silky Satin Lounge
Monday, May 1, 7pm & 9pm @ Little Gem Saloon
This trio debuted on WWOZ’s “New Orleans Calling” show recorded live at Basin Street Station. Brian Seeger and Roland Guerin helped me create something intimate and organic enabling me to explore new territory for the New Orleans clarinet style. Live recordings during 2015’s festival were captured for the latest Clarinet Road CD “Bayou Chant,” which led to bookings at prominent festivals such as Spoleto USA.
This will be the only Clarinet Road showcase during the 2017 Festival. We will do two shows at the Little Gem Saloon located on the historic 400 block of South Rampart Street. We will also feature special guest Jon-Erik Kellso on trumpet.
$15 Advance tickets that guarantee a premium seat. At the door, tickets will be $20.

Featured Artist with Chris Washburne’s Celebration of 100 Years of Jazz @ The Fisher Center
Our celebration of the newly released CD “Rags & Roots” continues with a special concert at the Fisher Center’s Sosnoff Theater at Bard College. The 1917 efforts by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band mark the first time for recorded music to be marketed as jazz. One-hundred years later, the health of the genre may seem dubious, but that won’t stop us from creating an experience with the best of what the art form offers. The adventurous attitude of the Catskill Jazz Factory helps make it possible. Special guests include vocalist Vuyo Sotashe; pianist André Mehmari and trumpeter Dominick Farinacci.

It was nice enough for journalist Larry Blumenfeld to check out the newest Clarinet Road CD, but extremely flattering for him to take the time to write this piece for Jazziz Magazine.
