Lucky 7s in Cadence year end lists

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.

site redesign and symphony cats

I think I have finished the recent site redesign. You’ll see the Upcoming Events listed in the sidebar, instead of on their own page. I think this will be a little more efficient for you and me.

I will be playing bass trombone with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra for the rest of this season (through May). I am not listing these performances on this website’s events calendar. Go to the LPO’s site (www.lpomusic.com) for all of the info about that schedule.

It is a real honor to be able to play with such a great orchestra. A very wise man told me he thinks this to be a golden age for the LPO, and my ears are agreeing with him.
