Hello! Last I wrote was end of the year…
December; we recorded at Sear Sound in NYC … my band for the new project is: Chris Caswell (Hammond B3 and co-producer) Miro Sprague; piano, Rod Fleeman; guitar,
Jeff Johnson; bass, Jerome Jennings; drums, and special guests Regina Carter (violin) and Houston Person (tenor sax) … I look forward to sharing it with you! (Aug 3)
And it’s always fun in Northampton MA w my friends Paul Arslanian, Bob Ferrier, Jon Fischer and George Kay.
In January I joined in on the fun at Jazz on the Mountain in Mohunk NY- a very cool event hosted by WBGO/ Michael Bourne… played a fun set with Miro, Martin Wind and
Jon Wikan. Also played a lovely afternoon concert with Miro and Marty Jaffe @ the Unitarian Church Series in Summit NJ.
Off to Hawaii ! Where it was a pleasure to stop over en route to Melbourne Australia — played a really fun week at Bird’s Basement there with the fab Joe Chindamo Trio.
Back to the Mainland we stopped in Port Angeles WA to do a masterclass with the lovely Jolene Dalton’s students and a concert with Miro, and Jeff Johnson — great fun and beautiful area. Went to Olympia National Forest and communed with the beautiful trees (and rainbows!)
Had a couple great house concerts in Seattle area after that (thank you Nich!) … quick trip back home to NYC, then turned around to do our photo shoot in Omaha ( we have our reasons, and you’ll see them! 🙂 THANK YOU MARY & TEAM!
Onto Mpls to spend precious time with my Mom… and due to the weather all over, more time than I expected! Also while there, I recorded with pianist Laura Caviani and her trio == one of her beautiful original songs — stay tuned on that one!
I went back to Omaha – and made a trip with family and friends to witness the Sandhill Crane Migration in Kearney NE along the Platte River == what a beautiful scene that is!
Also played a fundraiser in Lincoln for “Jazz for Justice” organization— great fun Thank you Noelle! And the band: Laura, Rod and Gerald…
Thank you for reading and listening
I look forward to seeing you out there !
Warmly, Karrin
