Here is a review (in Italian) of the Trapper Keaper concert at Deltablues Fest in Rovigo, IT. We opened for the Rovigo Conservatory Big Band with guest artist Mike Stern. Link to review page in Italian.
I co-led the band for a set called “Yes We Can: The Songs of New Orleans” to close out the 2017 Hyde Park Jazz Festival in Chicago. It was quite a party. My friend Dennis McDonough got some photos (as usual).
Clap your hands now, people get ready.

Mars Williams has done a concert of Albert Ayler’s music mashed up with Christmas music for 9 years now. The last two years have included a New Orleans version. Here is a collection of images from the December 13, 2016 performance at Cafe Istanbul in New Orleans with Mars Williams, Jeff Albert, Rob Cambre, Helen Gillet, Jesse Morrow, and Paul Thibodeaux.
