New solo CD now available! 

I'm super happy to announce my fifth studio album Canta, Violino! is now available on Ropeadope Records. The album is mostly originals and inspired by the Brazilian traditions I spent two years studying in Rio de Janeiro: samba, choro, forró, MPB, bossa nova. That said, there's a healthy dose of jazz and American influence as well! 

The launch party was on April 28th, 2018 at Isis Music Hall and we had several special guests from the label such as Jonathan Scales and Chuck Lichtenberger as well as Christian Howes and an amazing house band with Micah Thomas on drums and Cesar Garabini on guitar. Over 100 people came out and we brought the house down!
