It is an honor to have made the Rising Star Trombone list in the 2012 DownBeat Critics Poll.
Here is a link to the interview that Tim Daisy, Josef Butts, and I did on KRVS in Lafayette on June 14. The show is about an hour long, and we are on the second half.
“Similar in the Opposite Way” is now (finally) available on eMusic. Just click here.
The Lucky 7s CD, Farragut, made the top of Grego Edwards’ 2007 Record Poll list in Cadence Magazine. Even though the CD came out in late 2006, it was reviewed in Cadence in 2007, so it qualified for the 2007 lists. It’s nice to still be on someone’s mind so many months later. We’re in pretty good company too, other people on Grego’s list include Roscoe Mitchell, Peter Kowald, and Steve Swell.
The new Magnetic Ear disc is out. I don’t have copies directly for sale, but you can hear samples and buy them here: Louisiana Music Factory – Live At The Saturn Bar by Magnetic Ear
We had a fun time with the Saturn Bar run last summer, and the disc is a good representation of what the hang was like. I also did a good bit of the technical work on this disc, and I am very proud of it.
