The title could just as easily read "Mr. Tipple's All Month Long" because, March being the month when we celebrate women's achievements, Mr. Tipple's is hand the calendar over to an entire month of the Bay Area's musical women.


I feel so honored to be a part of it on March 16th, when my ensemble will be playing three sets of favorite grooves propelling my own original music, and music of jazz masters Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Roy Hargrove, and more. On that night I'll be joined by Bay Area legends Gary Brown (bass) and Deszon Claiborne (drums) as well as special guest Erik Jekabson (trumpet), who will also be contributing some of his exceptional original compositions.


And then be sure to go see all the other deeply talented women musicians making music for the rest of the month - you will be so glad not to have missed out on the artistry!

Wishing you a new year filled with peace, meaning, music, love and joy!



SFJAM is a community jam session sponsored by SFJAZZ and for the Holiday Grooves December 12th session, I'll be hosting from the piano, featuring Kristen Strom (sax), Troy Lampkins (bass), Jayla Hernandez (drums)...and you! The jam has a curated set list (although other tunes are welcome, of course)

...just click here to sign up. Listeners are absolutely welcome!


Joe Sample's Snowflake is on the top of that setlist, perhaps because it's been a favorite of mine for a few decades...so I went ahead and transcribed Joe's solo, which you can view below. Click over to the transcription page on this website to download the pdf. See you at the jam!
