Pictures and Recordings from Tony Starlight’s with Shelly Rudolph

Tony Starlight's

Last night, I played a fun gig at Tony Starlight’s with Shelly Rudolph’s band.  The band played great and was a good combination of people – Dave Captein, Russ Kleiner, and Clay Giberson.

Here are a couple of tracks from the performance:

Mention in All About Jazz

All About Jazz published an extensive review/recap of the Portland Jazz Festival today in their online edition.  There’s also a shorter version that appears in this month’s print version of All About Jazz:New York.  I’m mentioned a couple of times in the local section – once for sitting in with Dan Balmer’s band and the other for the casual gig Russ Kleiner put together at the Tugboat with Damian Erskine, Dan Duval, and myself.  Here’s the article.

Thursday Night

I headed over to the Tugboat tonight, where I caught a set of music by Chris Mosley‘s ExStatic band, featuring Damian ErskineRuss Kleiner, and Tim Willcox.  I had brought my tenor along, so I joined in on an entertaining version of “Tenor Madness” as well as “Reunion,” a Mosley original.

I always enjoy hearing Willcox and I’m very much looking forward to his upcoming CD release party.

Most of the rest of the day was spent working on JazzPDX, which is currently down during a server change.  When it comes back up, it’ll have a slightly different look, and the capability for quite a few new features.  I’m looking at the possibility of podcasting from the site (maybe with some collaborators), which is something I’m pretty excited about.

This weekend I start teaching at Cadenza Academy, the music education center Mike Pardew is a part of.
