It has been a long time since my co-conspirators and I last infiltrated JALC’s Dizzy’s Club and we are thrilled to be back! We’ll be returning on Wednesday, May 2, performing two sets of original music inspired by my mentor, Bob Brookmeyer — including the New York premiere of “Wingèd Beasts,” a new work commissioned by my alma mater, New England Conservatory, in honor of its 150th anniversary. We hope you’ll join us as we pay our respects to the man who got me addicted to bigband all those years ago.
