This track from SEMANTICS seems to have generated some interest!
NEW CD Drops TODAY! So excited for this record. Some of my favorite musicians, and special guest Rich Perry, one of my favorite musicians of all time. Such a treat to get to write some music for him and this band.
My latest JCP Mini-Lesson is up. Using some new unreleased music to talk about getting multiple meters going at the same time to create rhythmic illusions.
Had a great time talking to Samo about the latest releases. He really knew a bunch of records from my catalogue, and it was great to talk to someone who knows his stuff! Sam is a great musician whose unbridled love for music really shines through. And his illustration of me is pretty great!
I feel fortunate to be included again in the critics Poll!
So happy to be a part of this record! Keith and I co-wrote a number of the pieces, and I edited and mixed the recording, which was a ton of work and a ton of fun! Playing trio with Keith and Robert Hurst was a dream come true. And Keith and I created some great duos together, with some FX for extra effect!
During the recording of Norther Noir, a french filmmaker, Antoine Polin, was making a movie about Ran and his life. Antoine included some footage of us in the studio, and captured a few conversations about the music and of us just hanging. I can’t thank him enough. I can imagine I am going to look back on these moments that he included in his film with great fondness for Ran and the time we shared that week rehearsing, watching his favorite movies, and recording.
Looking forward to playing some new music at Cliff Bells!
with Keith Hall, Matthew Fries and John Hébert.
