Here’s what’s been going on lately:
Brad Cheeseman Group
The BCG played at Burlington’s Sound of Music festival back on the 16th, and it was a blast. There aren’t any more shows currently scheduled so I’m hoping to use the time to work on some more new material. Hopefully the next time you see us there will be a lot of new additions to the repertoire! Until then, the EP is still available at Bandcamp if you haven’t checked it out yet.
Brownman Electryc Trio
Brownman’s new Electryc Trio record, Gravitation, was released today and I am featured on the second track, “Ladybird”. This album also features a bevy of amazing bass players, including Marc Rogers and the one and only Damian Erskine. Go pick up a copy at CD Baby or iTunes!
I will also be playing with this insanely talented band at the Beaches Jazz Festival on July 25, 26 and 27.
Here are a few of the records I’ve been digging lately:
Mathias Eick – Skala
Mingus Big Band – Nostalgia in Times Square
Peter Erskine New Trio – Joy Luck
TesseracT – Altered State
Yellowjackets – Mint Jam
Other Notable Upcoming Gigs
July 15: John Cheesman Jazz Orchestra – The Rex, Toronto
July 25/26/27: Brownman Electryc Trio – Beaches Jazz Festival, Toronto
As always, be sure to keep checking back. I’m always adding new transcriptions, gigs and other content.
