06.Jun.2012New Recording Project Update
Hi all. The new recording project has been mixed and mastered! I'm very proud of the work that was done by all involved. My fellow band mates (Nathan Lincoln-Decusatis, Blake Meister, and Andrew Hare) played some really amazing things on the album and I have to thank Nathan for his compositional contributions as well! And I'm deeply indebted to Jeff Gruber at Blue House Productions (www.bluehouseproductions.com) for his outstanding work on this record. Be on the lookout for some of the tracks in the listen section of the website!
Thanks for your continued support of me and my music!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have a new recording project in the works. I spent this past Monday in the studio with an amazing group of musicians: Nathan Lincoln-Decusatis (piano), Blake Meister (bass), and Andrew Hare (drums). We recorded a whole lot of original music. Check back again soon to listen to some of the rough cuts!!
08.Oct.2011A Love Supreme
The Shepherd University Jazz Faculty performed Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" as a part of the Salon Series at SU. It was a great time! The cats in the band are amazing (Nathan Lincoln-Decusatis, piano; Dave Marsh, bass; and Ronnie Shaw, drums). The hall was packed with an appreciative audience. Check the 'listening' tab for a couple of excerpts from the recital.
