Rebound coverMy 2008 CD Rebound is now available as a digital download in a variety of formats (mp3, flac, etc). It’s a good example of my writing style for quintet and features the always lyrical Chris Cheek, the inventive Henry Hey at the piano, super-swifty Ferenc Nemeth, and pulse-tastic Matt Clohesy at the bass.

Thanks Vic!

This past summer we lost a giant in the world of percussion. Vic Firth was a true original, may his memory last forever. Here is a solo video of me recorded by the Vic Firth video crew last summer (2014). I’m playing the tune “It Could Happen To You” by Van Heusen/Burke. I’m using an extra worn-in set of their Burton M25 mallets.  Extra-special thanks to the Vic Firth company for their continuous support!
