My group with Larry Gray, Paul Wertico and Vijay Tellis-Nayak performed at the Iron Post

for the Champagne Urbana Jazz Festival this weekend. The audience was terrific, and very responsive to the

material we were playing from the new CD, Earthborn Tales of Soul and Spirit. We loved being at U of I.

I conducted a guitar clinic for some very serious students from the U of I. It was a real pleasure performing and

teaching there!

Earthborn Tales of Soul and Spirit

is due to be released October 24th, but you can buy copies in advance of that date here at the website. It is a project that I have spent much focused time on over the last couple years (composing, recording, mixing etc.!). It features Donny McCaslin, Marquis Hill, Paul Wertico and many others. I am truly grateful to all the musicians for their beautiful contributions to this project, and am excited to share that music both in recorded form and in upcoming live performances!

Click here to purchase your copy. Bonus: For a limited time, when you purchase the physical CD, you’ll get immediate access to the downloadable mp3 version of the CD as well, so you can listen right away.

I am really looking forward to some live performances. First, it has been a great experience to play as an organ trio with Ernie Adams and Vijay Tellis-Nayak (who recorded, mixed and helped to produce Earthborn Tales) at Andy’s Jazz Club on Tuesday nights (5 PM to 8:30 PM) during the months of September and October.

Hope you can come and catch a set!
