Most exciting of all is the Teaching + eBooks + eStore section of the site. Here you can book live-in person or online lessons with me via Skype and download my new eBook (coming soon).
I'm also going to be blogging about instruments and accessories. If I use it and think it's a worthwhile accessory I will talk about it. First up is Just Joe's Gel Sax Strap, the most comfortable sax strap on the market. Made in the USA and Germany, Joe's Gel Strap gets every detail correct. Also available are Ishimori Wood Stone straps and ligatures.
"Uptown Shuffle," available Now
Be sure to pick up a copy of my new record, "Uptown Shuffle" featuring Cyrus Chestnut, Brandi Disterheft and Joe Farnsworth. Available as a high resolution download mastered for iTunes or Audiophile CD or Vinyl, I'll be touring Japan in July in support of the new record. Listen to the San Diego Jazz 88.3 FM interview and read the JazzTimes review in the August 2014 issue.
