Expanding Homebase back to NYC

Back to New York. Getting settled.......

I'm now situated back in New York. Enjoying the Big Apple. Here in New York I had the pleasure to play with John Beasley's Monk'estra at the Jazz Standard last week and played a couple weeks ago with Neal Kirkwood's great big band at Sir D's in Brooklyn.

Otherwise, keeping busy composing, practicing, teaching and getting settled into my new digs in Newark, NJ.
