Appearing with Cords and Strings in Santa Fe on Black Friday! Join me at Vivo Contemporary Art Gallery located at 725 Canyon Road on the day after Thanksgiving. Really looking forward to playing this very special event with master guitar player Jesse Vernier. Vivo is celebrating their best year ever! We’ve got an ambitious program of great music planned. Covering a wide range of material from Joni Mitchell and Burt Bacharach to Johnny Mercer and Irving Berlin, I’ll also help you get into the holiday spirit with a special reading of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas set to music and a small selection of Christmas music putting the Santa in Santa Fe.
One of my favorite comments that has come up after our last couple of shows is that people feel like they have been transported to New York. Part of that is coming from taking on music from Broadway musicals, but part of it is coming from a certain feeling you get in New York. Dark little clubs where jazz players explore the limits of their instruments and the pulse of the city is all around, upstairs, downstairs, down the hall, just outside the door - it's a vibe - an energy - moments of clarity transcending chaos. Something magical is in the air here and we're hearing it and bringing it out to play and share with you. Hope you can feel it, too.
