World Premiere of John Zorn’s Bagatelles

stone_bagatelles_atonal_3

I’m honored to be included among this incredible lineup of musicians giving the world premieres of John Zorn’s Bagatelles.  The amazing guitarist Julian Lage and myself will perform a handful of these little gems in solo and duo formation on Sept 6 at The Stone…our first ever collaboration!

A nice memory…

EndOfShow_JohnCage

Playing an encore with my dad, the Kronos Quartet, and the Living Earth Show at SF Jazz last month.  This was just after the premiere of my first piece for string quartet, called the first pancake, featuring my pop on piano and melodica and yours truly on guitar and kick drum.  It was such a fun weekend!
