This Thursday night, August 8th, at 6:30 I will be performing with The Jeff Parker/Nels Cline
quartet - The Turning Point. We'll be rocking it at Millennium Park in Downtown Chicago as part of the Made in Chicago: World Class Jazz Series. I'm super excited to be playing with this group again after a few years apart. The band lead by guitarists Jeff Parker and Nels Cline, bassist Nate McBride and myself on drums interpreting Paul Bley's record, Turning Point, in its entirety.
Last year around this time i was asked to perform at Millennium Park with my own project, ¡Todos De Pie!, a 12-piece ensemble playing Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena tunes from the 2nd revival era in the 1960's. It is going to be super exciting to perform on that stage again, but without all the stress of being the bandleader.
