I’ll be returning to my hometown of Toronto a few times in early 2014 for some very special performances. More information can be found on the Gigs page.
January 8th & 9th I’ll be performing at The Rex with drummer Jim Hillman’s Teresina Quartet, his group devoted to Brazilian music. It’s been four years since I played my old stomping grounds.
The following night, January 10, I team up once again with one of my early mentors, the award-winning trumpeter Brownman, at his new artistic home of Mây.
In March 2014, Alicuanta will be re-staged at the Daniels Spectrum as part of Aluna Theatre’s Panamerican Routes festival. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for more up-to-date information as it comes.
I hope you have all had a healthy and happy holiday season and a safe transition into 2013! The gigs page has been updated with some of the winter activity, including the CD release and local tour dates for Gary Schwartz’s LETTINGO! Stay tuned here and to Facebook for more details as they arrive.
After more than four years as a group together, Trio Bruxo has finally launched its début EP on Bandcamp! Recorded at Chromatic Audio in Montreal, mixed and mastered by Moonstarr, it features three original compositions and some lesser-known covers.
Click on over to the brand new website for our show, ALICUANTA. We’re also asking for your support through Kickstarter to fund our premiere on Friday, November 2, 2012 at Salle Gesù!
I’m slowly in the process of making this site the hub for all of my news. I’ve updated the gig listings for 2012. The big news in brief:
– Gary Schwartz’s LETTINGO won the Prix Opus for “Best Jazz Concert – Montreal.” We celebrate our victory at the Segal Centre March 25, 2012, with some brand-new music.
– Matana Roberts’ Coin Coin will perform at the renowned Festival International de la Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville this May. I’m honoured to be on a piano bench that will also be occupied by John Medeski and Muhal Richard Abrams throughout the festival.
– I am proud to launch a new concert series, MOVIM, in partnership with La Elástica. The mandate is to present modern creative Latin music from Montreal. The first edition will feature Trio Bruxo & Moonstarr on March 16, 2012.
