There’s a lot going on these days.
- Killer Grooves — my Woodshed column from Bass Player Magazine, August, 2014.
- Questions, Answers, and more stuff you might not need to know — the new blog post is here.
- The nice folks at multicoolty.com did an interview with me recently about my work with the WDR Big Band and life in Germany as an American ex-pat.
- Also check out some of my other video lessons for my recent Woodshed columns in Bass Player Magazine: “What Goes Down, Must Come Up.”
- Peter Leitch is a brilliant jazz guitarist. Here’s a video from a concert we did way back in ’92.
- Also take a look at our recent livestream with Marshall Gilkes from the WDR Funkhaus Saal 2. Marshall Gilkes makes an appearance with the band, this time as arranger and conductor. Marshall has resigned from his position as 2nd trombone to move back to NYC and pursue his freelance career. It was fantastic having him in the band for four years, and by the looks of it, he’ll be coming back on occasion to conduct and arrange. Yes—we already have a new 2nd trombonist, the fantastic Shannon Barnett.
- And while you’re here, please take a minute to sign up for my newsletter. I’ll be sure and give you an update and just a bit of great information every once in awhile.
