Washington Nationals Dream Foundation

I had the grand pleasure of playing piano for the Washington Nationals Dream Gala a couple of weeks ago – and what a night it was! Most of the players were there, along with spouses/significant others, several hundred people, and the Presidents! (The huge president heads that you see running around during baseball games.) There was a silent auction and lots of mingling going on as I played background jazz standards, blues … and Aladin’s “A Whole New World,” requested by pitcher Gio Gonzales. The Presidents would come by every once in a while, and at one point Teddy hopped up on stage to air jam next to me. Luckily, the moment was captured and tweeted by a journalist 🙂 Best pic of #DreamGala to date pic.twitter.com/c2oKO2SCp1 —...

Jazz Trio in Alexandria

Big thanks to The Balcom Group for having us play a couple of weeks ago in Alexandria! I had a great time (along with Mark Saltman and Greg Discher) playing an evening of jazz standards at the Westin. We were even joined by one of the guests who sang The Girl for Ipanema in Portuguese (with an excellent accent from what we could tell!). You can listen to clips from three of our tunes that night at our Washington DC Jazz Trio page.

Jazz Festival in Breda, NL

Happily stumbled across the Breda Jazz Festival today! It was set up in the old downtown area, all outdoors and free. There were 16 stages, each packed with listeners holding beer cups and various finger foods. We hardly made it to those groups though as we were pleasantly sidetracked by a couple of local bands playing in the streets. It was very New Orleans – my favorite. The first was called Rue d’Anvers, and we encountered them marching up to an opening in the square where they set up camp and played a few tunes. They had all my favorite parts of New Orleans street music: tuba bass line, multiple horn harmony sections, and spunky solos. Once they wrapped up, we continued on our way and a few more steps later came across Honkers Brass Band. A...
