I'm still buzzing from Ingrid Laubrock and Tom Rainey's visit to Nashville this week - and I'm too blown out to try to write something coherent about it. However, I did make a rambling video, if you are interested. Suffice to say, it was AMAZING.


In other exciting news: test pressings arrived of Cosmologies, my new album with Sam Byrd! They sound really good. So, we're still on track for a release at the end of June. Wahoo! You can download  digital copy of the album and pre-order the LP on Bandcamp.
