I am looking forward to playing some of the older pieces from the hornband repertoire with Howard this week. Particularly a tune called Fungus which was written in honour of Charles Mingus. It will be very exciting to have a Mingus alumni like Howard energizing that tune for us. Tuba for sure!

We are performing at the Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival (free concert) june 30, noon-2pm at nathan phillips square.

July 1 at the Ottawa Jazz Fest at Confederation park, (free concert that happens to be a really great triple bill)

Montreal Jazz Festival July 3, 9pm at Musee Contemporain (a great place to hear music and check out the permanent collection of avant garde Quebec painters!)

stay tuned for details on the European dates in July.
