December is upon us

’m excited to finally learn how to use cameras, video editing programs, an finally open my own YouTube Channel! I also uploaded my first video there of my version of a Philly Joe Jones solo (also attached below), so go ahead check it out and feel free to comment and Subscribe!

This past month I had the amazing experience of playing at the Village Vanguard for the first time! I layed there together with Vadim Neselovskyi Trio and it was unlike any of my experiences thus far. The amazing full house with the amazingly supportive audience, combined with the superb Vanguard room sound and John Zorn’s music, created a real special night for us.

This month I am looking forward to travel and play in Israel at the Tel-Aviv Jazz Festival together with Uri Gurvich’s Group! Also can’t wait to see family and friends there! 

Other Scheduled activities this coming month include Vadim Neselovskyi recording for John Zorn, Noa Fort Group at Cornelia Street Cafe, Franco Finstad Band at Lincoln Center, Jane Irwin Group at Winnie’s Jazz Bar, Matt Brier Group at Flatiton Room, among others. The updated list as always in the Schedule section.  

Coming up

Many things I’m looking forward to in the beginning of 2018! 

They include Josh Deutsch’s Pannonia second album release at Joe’s Pub. 

A few exciting shows with Vadim Neselovskyi Trio including a German tour with a show at Munster Jazz Festival (that will be broadcast at the famous WDR), a show at the renowned Unterfahrt in Munich, as well as a show at the BPC together with choir and special guests! 

Noa Fort’s Group CD Release show at Rockwood. 

And probably three tours that will be confirmed very soon!

Stay tuned!
