I’m honored to be singing several of Les’ arrangements with a brilliant group of musicians: Les at the piano, Lynne Snyder on clarinet, John Brugman […]

The Conspirators and I will be back at Pinocchio’s in Pasadena this Pi Day! (That’s next Saturday, 3/14, for those of you not quite geeky enough to observe the holiday.)  We’ll be playing from 7-10pm, which is prime dinner time, and, I’m reminded, everyone’s gotta eat!

Me, Flea and cookies: what a deal!

I’m honored to be singing with the Caltech Jazz Bands again at their annual winter showcase.  If “Basin Street Blues” and a brand-spankin’-new Les Deutsch arrangement of “Christmas Night in Harlem” aren’t enough to tempt you, how about this: I’ll be sharing the stage with none other than Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers!  […]

Burning Man was, of course, awesome.  There was dust, there was fire, there was geekery, there were nicknames, there was fire, there was art, there was music … and did I mention there was fire?  Among other things, I learned how to change the alternator in the head […]

Looking to jam at Burning Man

I’m getting ready to go to Burning Man for the first time.  I first planned to go so I could sing with the Black Rock City Swing Orchestra (and maybe sit in on trombone, too), but my plans have expanded!  I’ll be there for the the whole shebang, showing up a little early to help […]

I spent last week in Zurich at a robotics conference and as I hoofed it around the city in the evenings, there was music upon music at venue after venue, all of them clamoring for a little time in my ears. Now that I’m back home in Los Angeles, in the spirit of checking out […]
