I will be heading off to do some auditions in Los Angeles and New York City. I've been working hard and would love to have the chance to perform some of that music for you!  The repertoire will be a mixture of standards and more contemporary compositions by the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Woody Shaw, and Kurt Rosenwinkel.  I'll be on bass, joined by two of my favourite musicians, U of M faculty members Will Bonness (piano) and Quincy Davis (drums).
