New Music….Clark:Rempis:Roebke Live at The Hungry Brain

I was lucky enough to travel to Chicago in mid 2014 to play and hear some great music. This recording is a documentation from that trip and a set that I played at the Hungry Brain featuring the great saxophonist Dave Rempis and the great bassist Jason Roebke. It was an honor to get to play with both of these musicians. You can find out more information about these musicians on their websites and see all of the great music that they have available.

Also, in case you missed it, last week we were on the CBS 6 morning show called “Virginia This Morning”.  If you weren’t able to see it live, you can watch it here.
