Kneebody East Coast, Kimbra, Snarky Puppy, Murder Inn - September 30, 2014

Kneebody just finished a great run of shows on the east coast. We started in Philly at the World Cafe. Great first show there – we’ve been wanting to come to the World cafe for a long time. And Philly too. We all need to be there more. So we will be anyhow… Friday we made it to Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. This was a great night. Tiny Hazard opened. They sound fantastic. Then we performed a collaboration set with Kimbra. She is the real deal. Please check out her latest album “The Golden Echo”.

We headed to Boston after that with shows at the Bean Town Jazz Festival and then a set opening for Snarky Puppy at Berklee Performance Center. Snarky destroyed. Michael League is a fantastic bassist and good dude. I've been thinking about his bass playing ever since that night. It was great to see those guys and hear a band who plays so much like them play together. It’s our third time back to Boston in a year and it is feeling more and more like we have a home there and are building something special. We closed the tour out with a show at the Iron Horse in Northamton. Beautiful classic venue and we hope to come back soon! That night we stayed at a hotel in Hartford that should be called the Murder Inn. Creepy place but we pulled through. 

Now we're getting new music together and getting ready for a European Tour in November!

 

 

Jazz a la Villette - September 15, 2014

We were just able to play in Paris at the festival Jazz a La Villette. We got to share the night with Joshua Redman featuring the Bad Plus. It was an absolutely fantastic night. The band felt great and what's more, you can watch the entire concert here.

Here we are with The Bad Plus who are the real fucking deal.

Kimbra "The Golden Echo" - August 19, 2014

About four or five years ago I had the great fortune to be able to meet and work with a fantastic artist named Kimbra Johnson. She was writing with my friend Keefus Ciancia for her last album "Vows" and I got to play on the song "Come Into My Head" on that record. We also wrote a song together that became "Love In High Places" that is featured on her new album "The Golden Echo" that is out today!

Love Love.
