In case you missed my first piano solo transcription post, you'll now be able to find a few new ones posted right here on my "transcriptions & scores" page, or if you have happen to be on YouTube you'll see them up on my channel.

The latest one is Wynton Kelly's solo on Freddie Freeloader:

And brand new to my YouTube channel is the first edition of "Composing in Action," where I'll post short videos of compositions as I create and write them This first one features a bit of iPad technology called StaffPad:

...I thought of the title for the series after posting the video so not to worry - it will all get straightened out in the end (lol!).

If you would like to be notified when I post new videos, subscribing to my YouTube channel is the best way to do that. Just log in to YouTube, make your way over to my channel and click the subscribe button and the bell.

More to come this fall! Enjoy!

I'm happy to say my new Transcriptions & Scores page is up and running (you can visit it by clicking here), starting out with McCoy Tyner's fantastic solo on Bessie's Blues (from John Coltrane's album Crescent). I'll be adding to it regularly and posting links on social media. Upcoming posts will include a broad range of things from solos of our jazz icons to current jazz titans. The page will also include originals and original arrangements of my own. Feel free to download the .pdfs and if you are able, stop by the donation button - all donations go to offset the cost of transcription, audio and video. Many thanks!

The music carries on and carries us with it!

To keep everyone safe during this current surge of the corona virus in San Francisco, the Chez Hanny performance, originally scheduled for this coming Sunday (August 22nd), has now been postponed. I'll post the new date as soon as it's confirmed.

In the meantime, I'll be performing at SFJAZZ on Weds October 27th and November 10th (7pm in the Joe Henderson Lab) as part of Terrence Brewer's A Great Day in Harlem Revisited. We'll be featuring the music of pianists Willie "The Lion" Smith, Luckey Roberts, Marian McPartland and Mary Lou Williams, so stay tuned for more details. You can find tickets here.

Please be careful and see you soon!
