Into the Woods

Lots of news, just haven't been writing about it because I've been in the woods, well, mountains, at Perry Mansfield in Steamboat Springs, CO having an amazing time playing, practicing and writing music...and enjoying the superb mountain biking on offer.  

Come see Limbs on Sept. 12th at Dixon Place and hear what I've been working on!



Alvin Ailey at City Center

Last night I saw Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at City Center. As usual the dancers are beyond beautiful and mesmerizing.   It's always a small thrill to see students I have played for in class performing on stage with the first company!

The first piece was Chroma by Wayne McGregor. In addition to being the best piece on the program, it was also the clearest sign that Robert Battle is figuring out how to move the company forward. Yes!

Bill T. Jones's D-Man in the Waters was next which I also found highly enjoyable with its frenetic energy. 

And then came Revelations...oh boy...The choreography is still mostly engaging, especially Fix Me and Sinner Man.  That said, good gracious it looks and feels so dated.  The music and the costumes, oof.  I feel like no one is willing to have a real conversation about how dated this piece is, it only happens in hushed whispers.  My dream is that Robert Battle will figure out how to lead the company out from under the shadow of Revelations.


Quiet Times

It's the slow days for dance classes. . .that time of year I look forward to while simultaneously considering stressing out about. . .work is slow so my coffers aren't impressive but I am rich in time. . .which I tend to value more anyway.

Working on getting Limbs ready for PASIC. . .working with good friend and super-talented songwriter Matt Van Winkle on some tracks. . .finally writing some new material. . .all in all it feels pretty good, money be damned.

Got to play for one of my favorites today, Earl Mosley. . .here's a shot of me enjoying being in the studio. . .if only every class could be this good.
