Ellipsis and Ellipsis

Straight Talk

Sduoitle

Acoustic

Not Even Electronic

Déjà vu

And Ellipsis

And a taste of what’s to come:

Every solo concert is a learning opportunity, and this one was no different.  I found myself going back to little motives over and over again – there was the allure of a certain dominant-to-tonic lick, an odd minor third in the upper register here and there, some fragments of old standards (maybe because it was Valentine’s Day) - and it helped anchor the structure of these improvisations.

Special thanks goes to Derek Beckvold and Andrew Hock for sharing the evening with me – they both did long-form solos which were totally amazing (you can listen to Andrew’s set here).  Also, extra special thanks goes to Rob Chalfen for running the Outpost: its casual radicalism makes it one of my favorite places to play.

And thank you for checking out the music!
