Hey Seattle, Speed trio with Dave King and Chris Tordini is playing the Earshot Festival Oct 13th Sunday night at the Cornish Hall on Capitol Hill. We will definitely hit cafe Vita. Or Vivace. Or whatever Italian labeled espresso Seattle has to offer. We are working on the recording (and titles), should be out by the end of the year! We recorded 26-2! and a gentlemen's tempo All Of Me, get ready! About to embark on some Claudia quintet work, John just released our 6th(?) recording, seasonal appropriately titled 'September'. Michael Formanek is presenting his big band music Thursday Sep 26th at Shapeshifter with many esteemed colleagues. If you live in NYC may I suggest attending... Just performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival with Mr. Craig Taborn new ensemble with King and Chris Lightcap.
