New Video from The Jazz Gallery 

Here is a new video of the performance at Jazz Composers' Series Vol.5 at The Jazz Gallery last month. Thank you all for coming! This concert gave me an opportunity to work on new arrangements for my compositions for horns, string quartet and rhythm section. I hope you enjoy!


Happy New Year! Jazz Gallery on February 4th! 

I'm very excited to announce that I will be joining the Jazz Composers Showcase featuring The Stereography Project at The Jazz Gallery this Thursday, February 4th! 

The showcase features three composers, Marike van Dijk, Miho Hazama, and myself with Marike's phenomenal band, The Stereography Project. 

It's going to be the first time that I will be performing my compositions with an ensemble that involves a string quartet. I have written the new arrangements specially for this show. Marike and Miho are fantastic composers. Don't miss the chance to hear it!
