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.

Beck Songreader - August 14, 2014

I'm very proud to have played bass on a song from this new Beck record. A few years ago he wrote and released a series of songs that were only released as sheet music to be interpreted by whomever wanted to play or sing them. This year a collection of artists and producers got together and interpreted these songs for this record "Beck Songreader". I got to play bass on the song "America Here's My Boy" sung by Swamp Dogg. Larry Goldings played piano and Levon Henry played and arranged woodwinds. Joe Henry produced. I think it sounded wonderful and was so happy to be a part of it all.
