New Album to be released on September 30! 

I'm extremely excited to announce that I'll be releasing my latest album this September 30, 2022! The Calgary release concert is soon to be announced officially, but I can give you a bit of a heads up in advance.  The release will be on October 1 as part of the Chronograph Records Showcase.  Further details will be shared soon.

I can't wait to share the album with everyone that helped to fund it as part of my "Bread For Jazz" fundraiser. I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I have.  Michael Dangelmaier outdid himself with the graphic design and Trudie Lee managed to coax some fun pictures out of me, even though I'm camera shy.

My calendar is nearly updated, so you can also hear me play with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in September and October.  Prime Time Big Band is also back for another season and I hope to premier a couple new works with the band early in the season.  

Baritone Madness will be travelling to Lethbridge to play a matinee show on Saturday October 22.  I've also been writing new arrangements and I'm in talks to present another Baritone Madness show in Calgary in the near future. 

As always, I hope to see you all at one of these shows!  

Welcome
