Trio Gig in Brooklyn, Sunday June 5


Sunday, June 5th; 8-10:30pm

61 Local, 61 Bergen St, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

The Acoustic Electric Piano Series, curated by Brian Whiton and Big Wrench Piano present this evening of music at this hip Carroll Gardens performance space.  I’ll be playing a meticulously renovated Wurli 200A
electric piano that Steve and Brian at Big Wrench have fixed up.

My trio covers a lot of musical ground, from original music to favorites from the American Songbook, jazz standards, Latin and Brazilian tunes and classic rock and R&B favorites. The unifying factor is that we play songs we truly know and love, and we creatively explore the diverse repertoire and make it undeniably jazz. I’ve has been playing a Wurlitzer electric piano for 25 years and I consider the instrument a vital voice in my musical self-expression.
