New Instagram — @bone_drone !

I created an Instagram account specifically for little music/art videos showcasing my trombone loop compositions. I’ve challenged myself to create 3 new videos per week (!), and so far I’ve been able to maintain it. Follow @bone_drone to see them:

I’m thrilled to be joining The National again this summer for some shows and festival performances all over the US and Europe. Last night, we performed a super fun show at Mass MoCA. Here are some choice fan photos from the concert:

Love Song For Roz

Lately, I’ve had the immense pleasure of getting to know Roswell Rudd. As you may know, he’s a legendary trombone player known primarily for his work in free and avant-garde jazz and landmark collaborations with Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, John Tchicai and Steve Lacy. He’s also the greatest guy ever! I’ve had so much fun hanging and playing with him recently in upstate, NY.

His partner, Verna Gillis, wrote a tune for Roswell called “Love Song For Roz”, and asked various artists to record a version. Here is mine, recorded with my effects & loop pedal setup:

Thanks for listening!

Live solo set aired on WFMU

It was surreal hearing myself perform a 30 min set on WFMU, “This The Modern World” with DJ Trouble. I had such a blast recording that set in the WFMU studio and am so thankful to Trouble for having me. If you didn’t catch it on the radio, you can stream the show here:

Contributed to new Frightened Rabbit album

I recorded horns for a track (Little Drum) on the new Frightened Rabbit album, Painting Of A Panic Attack. The whole thing sounds so good and I’m honored to have contributed to it. This was one of the first opportunities I had to record horn parts remotely at my studio in upstate NY, and I’m so grateful for it!

Contributed To “Day Of The Dead”

I’m so honored to have contributed some horn arranging and performing for this epic Grateful Dead tribute album:

Day of the Dead is an epic tribute to the music and artistry of the Grateful Dead, curated by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National. They have brought together some of their favourite musicians to reinterpret the songs and sounds of the Dead for a new generation. 59 tracks and over 5 hours of music makes the album a landmark to get lost in, to discover hidden treasures and to make your own playlists for whatever mood you’re in.
