Thrilled and honored to be working with Kris Davis for these all through November!
Current Obsession will be the receptacle name I'll use for different groups of improvisers and current collaborators. Happy to share this first version with you featuring:
Asher Kurtz - guitar and Chris Pitsiokos - saxophone.
This will be our second time back and we're excited to see old friends again. Looking forward to lots of food and hanging too! We'll be going into the studio to record some new music in the near future....stay tuned!
Dallas, TX - Back in Texas this week enjoying nice weather, great coffee and wonderful friendships for a few days!
Excited to be recording record with longtime collaborator Garrett Wingfield on saxophones. We recorded an improvised duo release about a year ago "Yeah, No Thanks" that can be found here. This time we've brought more saxophones (double baritone saxes, C and Bb Tenors, and alto) and clarinets (Bb's and Bass) to add to the mix. We're joined by bassist Chris Wright and longtime friend John Sturino (we played together in the Jazz Band of America 2012!) on drums and vibraphone too.
Stay tuned for more updates and pictures coming on social media! Until soon....
