Hi there folks, wishing everyone a happy New Year. I had a great little vacation from teaching filled with eating, practicing and hanging out with friends and family. A few gigs coming up that I’m excited about. On Jan. 19th I’ll be at the Blue Whale with Jason Harnell and Joe Bagg. We have a group called Sigmund Fudge with Ryan McGillicuddy on bass but since Ryan is teaching in Korea currently we’re trying it sans bass, hence “Just Fudge”. And then Jan. 29, I’ll be playing at John Pisano’s Guitar Night at Lucy’s 51. All of us jazz guys in LA know what a treasure John is to the scene and it’s always an honor to be asked to play with him. Hope to see some of you guys there!
