Last month I enjoyed recording upright bass on the swinging new jazz for kids cd by Sarah Gardner. We spent a full day recording in MA with great Boston area musicians. This record is the sequel to her first recording of jazz for kids which is available for purchase here. Look for the new one in the spring.
Also last month was two successful tours by Roosevelt Dime. We had a great time and played to packed houses in NYC, DC, VA, MA, VT, and NY.
This month I look forward to recording electric and upright bass on the new Alastair Ottesen record, along with friends and great players Paul Orbell on guitar and Joel Arnow playing drums. Alastair writes amazing, thoughtful, introspective songs. I suggest having a listen here.
A highlight this month is a show at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA on the 11th. I’ll be backing up slide guitars players including Jim Henry, Cliff Eberhardt, Brooks Williams, and Abbie Gardner. That’s a lot of strings! Here's more info.
February also means the annual folk alliance conference in Kansas City. There I’ll be running around and playing late night showcases with Roosevelt Dime, Dan Navarro, and Brad Cole. The conference consists of a couple thousand musicians, promoters, presenters, and fans all hanging out, networking, and performing. It’s always a great time with limited sleep.
