Thanks to the great crew that came out on February 24 for the first in this series of workshops. I’m looking forward to working with all of you again on March 17.
We spent most of the session playing through the music from my 1994 album In Our Lifetime, dedicated to Booker Little. Also had a chance for some nice discussion about composition, playing, and Booker Little’s music and impact.
On March 17 the workshop series will continue with a session playing music from the record Stargazer, dedicated to Wayne Shorter. And on April 21 we will continue with Soul on Soul, dedicated to Mary Lou Williams. On May 30 there will be a performance of some of this music. All of this is happening at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn.
Drop us a line if you are interested in attending. Look forward to hearing from you.
