This Sunday (November 17th) at 9pm the ScottClark4tet will be playing at the Commercial Taphouse in our fair city #rva. It’s always a great honor to get to play with this group and we’re excited to try out some of our new music.
I still have a few copies of our record A&B and I’ll have them with me.
(in the meantime you can still purchase digital copies here http://scottclark4tet.bandcamp.com/)
I hope that you can join us….

Last year the ScottClark4tet had the honor of being asked to participate in the Mingus Awareness Project. “The Mingus Awareness Project is a series of concerts that benefits organizations that provide support for individuals who have ALS as well as their families. MAP concerts also provide opportunities for audiences and performers to celebrate the music of Charles Mingus, music composed by artists who worked with Mingus, as well as music by composers who perform during MAP concerts. Eleven Mingus Awareness Project concerts have happened in Chicago, IL and Richmond, VA since 2007.”
The show featured many Richmond bands including Glows in the Dark, No BS! Brass Band, The Angry Man Quartet, Hooten/Levin/Jones ft. JC Kuhl, and the Jon Hey Quartet. The Borderbend Arts Collective made a recording of the whole night, which is available on the Mingus Awareness Project bandcamp page here http://bit.ly/11xI8vu. (here is a link to the 2nd half of the show http://bit.ly/11yL4Mj.)
Enjoy the music and please consider purchasing a copy of the recording to support this great cause.
thanks for the support
I know that Jason Crane stopped doing the Jazz Session Podcast in October of 2012, but he has been so kind to all of us and has left the archive available for all of us to enjoy. There are so many great interviews in the archives (Jack DeJohnette, David Liebman, William Parker, Nate Wooley, Matana Roberts, John D’earth….and on and on and on and on!!) (also a few RVA musicians). It’s such a great resource for all of us musicians, and for the public at large, interested in learning more about so many great musicians of today. I find myself continuing to go back to Jason’s site to listen to interviews that I’ve already listened to or to see if there are interviews with musicians that I’d love to hear talk about their music and their art. (and also to discover new musicians that I might not have heard of).
I just want to share this site again for anyone interested….and I hope that this great resource stays available for a long time.

I’m excited to let everyone know about the next show in the series that we’ve been doing at the wonderful ForInstance Gallery in Richmond, VA (107 East Cary St.). This wednesday (11/14) will feature former Chicago trombone player, now living in North Carolina, Jeb Bishop in a duo performance with the great saxophonist Jorrit Dijkstra. They are touring in support of their new album “1000 Words”.
(You can hear some samples of their music, and purchase a copy of their new album, on their bandcamp page at http://driffrecords.bandcamp.com/album/1000-words
Joining the show will be a slight variation of my ScottClark4tet, this time group will feature Bryan Hooten on trombone.
I hope you can come and join us for a great night of music and welcome these musicians to rva. ForInstance Gallery is a great intimate space to hear just this kind of music. Plus the backdrop of the amazing art by Martin Johnson makes for a truly unique experience.
