E4 Radio Play, Pictures, etc.

I’ve been busy subbing some shows in a production of "Dreamgirls" here in Portland, so I haven’t done any jazz gigs in the past week or so.  However, I have scraped up some blogging material, as I’ve been working with local photographer and jazz fan Redd Williams on a photo gallery for JazzPDX, and he sent some pictures he took of me.  The first is from a Produce Row jam session and the next two are from sitting in with Shelly Rudolph at Wilf’s.

E4 got some radio play tonight on Tom D’Antoni’s KMHD show.  Glad there are a few DJs on that station playing local music.

Shows, Website

Last night I hit Jimmy Mak’s to catch Dan Balmer‘s last show before he heads out on tour with vocalist Diane Schuur. While he’s gone, a bunch of different groups will be taking over his Monday residence, including E4 on March 3rd.

I’m still playing lots of tenor, trying out the new sound. Played last night at Produce Row at Ron Steen’s session and had an exciting tenor battle with Marc Hutchinson. That guy sounds great.

There’s a new addition to the website – on the right there’s a JazzPDX widget showing all of the recent articles I’ve posted on that site.
