    […] I mentioned in my last post that I’d perform with The Instant Composer’s Pool Orkest in Philadelphia and that was an amazingly fun night in early April! The music felt great all around, the audience was full and seemed to enjoy it plus the Christ Church in Philadelphia is such a beautiful venue.  Some family and friends came down to take in the concert as well.  Many thanks to the ICP for having me with them during their 3 day stay at the Ars Nova Workshop and to Susanna von Canon for all the arrangements.  About a week later on Monday, APRIL 11 the Evolving Music Series moved from the Local 269 to its new home at the Celemente Soto Velez.  We had an AMAZING grand opening including a duo set with Theo Bleckmann/Jay Clayton, The Charles Gayle Forgiveness Trio and Charles Gayle conducted a large ensemble after that as well to close out the night!  Thanks to bassist Dominic Lash for performing the opening set with me to a packed house.  I closed out April with a fun set at the 55BAR playing with the Jazz Vault Project working out some new vibes for a big gig coming up this month! Getting to that shortly but before I do a BIG thank you to Jason Crane for once again asking me to be on his popular and wonderful podcast, the JazzSession.  The show aired on April 11, 2011 and is still available for download here.
