Charm Offensive

I'm excited to announce the release of my quartet's debut record, Charm Offensive. The CD features Keefe Jackson on tenor sax, Devin Hoff on bass, and Marc Riordan on drums, performing five of my pieces and one of Marc's.

We'll be celebrating the release of the CD with 2 sets at the Hideout, next Wednesday, November 9, at 10pm, though Jason Roebke and Frank Rosaly will be anchoring the rhythm section in place of Devin and Marc. The quartet will feature some new material I wrote while at the Atlantic Center for the Arts this past month. Here are the details:
