My first record as a bandleader, Cicada Music, has been released on Delmark Records! It features James Falzone on clarinet, Jason Stein on bass clarinet, Keefe Jackson on bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet and tenor saxophone, Jason Adasiewicz on vibraphone, Jason Roebke on bass and electronics, and myself on drums, percussion, electronics and piano. As you can expect, I'm super excited about being on a record with 5 dear friends who are all exceptionally talented, absolutely ripping the music.You can pick up the record at Dusty Groove, Jazz Record Mart, Orbit Records and Amazon, and as a download on iTunes.

Cicada Music will be performing this Wednesday, April 24th, at The Hideout in Chicago to celebrate the release! 10pm, 2 sets!
