Clarinet Road opens the “NY Hot Jazz” stage for the Jan 12 music marathon at NYC WinterFest. I’ll be at the charming and historic Greenwich House School of Music and will kick off the evening with contemporary renderings of classics by New Orleans clarinet legends with the help of Ehud Asherie, Neal Caine & Darrian Douglas.
Later in the evening, around 9:30pm, I’ll be a special guest with the winsome Tatiana Eve Marie.
Greenwich House is at 46 Barrow St, New York, NY 10014

Neslorchestra @ Allways Lounge
Along with about 18 of the city’s musical stalwarts, I’ll be part of Rick Trolsen’s NESLORCHESTRA. It’s a beast of a band led by a beast of a trombonist and composer, Rick Trolsen. Hard to believe it’s been nearly 25 years since I became an honorary Neslortian playing a few gigs with the original Neslort on Frenchmen Street before it became, well, …what it is today.
Neslort was among a handful of creative projects that put Frenchmen Street on the map including Galactic, Mas Mamones, Klezmer All-Stars and Royal Fingerbowl. It’s wonderful, despite our city’s devolving “cultural economy,” that creative artists like Rick are still on the scene.
