I don't always play with my family members, but when I do, it's usually my Dad and he plays drums. My longest collaborator!
The then NFAA, now YoungArts Jazz Fellows Combo, in 2009. From L-R, Emmet Cohen, Armand Hirsch, Kate Davis, Benny Benack III, me, Mark Whitfield Jr. This band was a lot of fun!
Old Jazz Gallery Debut
My first outing as a leader at The old Jazz Gallery in New York City. The band was myself, Nils Weinhold on guitar, John Escreet on piano, Raviv Markovitz on bass and Justin Brown on drums. Fortunately for my sake, no video evidence remains...I think?
Grammy Jazz Throwdown
A first meeting of sorts between now long time friends! Saxophonist Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on the left, me in the middle at pianist/organist Jake Sherman on melodica. Must have been a free hour during Grammy Band in 2008. Good times
My first album
In 2003, my dad set up some tracks via Band in the Box and I recorded an album. I believe hits such as "Doxy", "Autumn Leaves" and a few others were on this. Perhaps one day, I'll post a link to an audio soundbite, but most likely not!
