and meanwhile in New York…

Thanks to our friends in Ottawa for a great visit! Much, much warmer than the last time….

Festival of New Trumpet Music opens the first of its new thrice-yearly mini-festivals this evening in New York. New Trumpet Underground 2009 begins at 9pm at Cornelia Street Cafe with Greg Bobulinski, Josh Berman (who I guess won’t be at the Jazz Showcase tonight), and Leron Thomas. Three great trumpeters… Tomorrow Nadje Noordhuis will perform her new commissioned work at the festival.

Here’s a link to the full schedule at FONT’s new site.
