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.
