FONT (Festival of New Trumpet Music)

Very Excited to announce that I've been asked to play at FONT this year(Festival of New Trumpet music).  For those that don't know, its a festival started by Dave Douglas to feature new music for trumpet and is held in various venues around NYC.  Past performers have included: Ingrid Jensen, Jeremy Pelt, Peter Evans, Dave Douglas, Ambrose Akinmusire, Nadje Noordhuis, Kenny Wheeler etc.  I will be playing with my group 'Heart of Darkness' on Sept 26th at Smalls Jazz Club.  There will also be several other great groups performing that evening(including the great Dave Chisolm; looking forward to finally hearing him in person).  Make your calendars!  To here Heart of Darkness check out our page: here
