Well, after putting my A/C unit back in for the 3rd time this month, I’ve resigned myself to waiting for the super hurricane that will flatten New York. It was a nice week of fall while it lasted but the shorts and flip flops are back. So anyway…The Gigs!!!
-Wednesdays October 11th, 18th and 25th, I will be at the greatest cigar bar/jazz venue on an Ivy League campus, the Owl Shop in New Haven, with the Hawkins Jazz Collective from 9-12. (follow me on Instagram for Owl Shop updates)
-Sunday the 15th will find me back at the Flatiron Room with Alina from 7-10.
-On Monday the 16th, I’ll be starting a new jam session at Salzy, a local bar in the South Slope. Joining me will be Alon Benjamini on Drums and Malik McLaurine on Bass. 8-10, bring your axes!
See you soon!

Hey guys, here’s a video from the Jarek Smietana Competition and Gala Concert at the Kraków Philharmonic earlier this month in which I was lucky enough to take 2nd prize and meet guitar greats Mike Stern and Peter Bernstein as well as befriend some of the best young guitarists on the scene today. (I play my original composition “Haiti Song” at about 5:10)
