I don't think they knew what hit 'em, but we killed at the fest. Pat Owens & me on horns and fx, Kevin Barnett piano and synth, Karl Wilhelmi guitar, Bob Andrews bass, Bob Arms percussion, PJ Franco drums. Great collective improv that went some really cool places for our Clouds of Summer and A New Kind of Bird. Love to do more of that!
Great time at the Relay for Life this beautiful Alaska afternoon. Sunny, blue skies, great band and wonderful cause!
Kevin Barnett and I got together on November 7th at Lovin' Dog Music Studios in Eagle River and laid down 10 new takes on some Christmas favorites. Get your digital download today or pick up a copy starting December 19th!
AKSAXO JAZZ wraps up 2011 with some great events. Alaska Medical Missions annual gala was a tremendous success along with a great Christmas party for Women Entrepreneurs of Alaska. Four more private Christmas parties and our regular dates at I Luv Sushi rounds things out! Special thanks to Min and Brandon at I Luv Sushi for a fabulous live music venue right here in South Anchorage. Also special to thanks to Jennifer at Amazing Grace Media for some excellent performing opportunities. We're looking forward to working with her in 2012!
Great food and a particularly exciting live auction! I'll be posting some live recordings soon!
The Snow Goose was jumpin' with an awesome variety of vocalists! Even more fun than usual!
Crowds are getting bigger on Friday and Saturday nights! Great audience participation and lots of requests. Great response to my new harmonizer toy...instant flute trio and sax section!
Great crowd for a summer Saturday (rain didn't hurt one bit!) Tour group from Korea showed up later and Evgeny & I managed a few requests. Back on the 26th with Kev.
