Very excited to announce that Mike’s piece, “Scalene Scene”, was selected as a winner of the 360ᵒ Jazz Initiative’s 2015 call for scores. The piece will be performed by the group this coming spring at the Sharp Nine Jazz Club (http://www.durhamjazzworkshop.org/) in Durham, NC!

Enjoyed talking with Caleb Davis last evening about my take on composition. We had a good (and somewhat lengthy) chat about some issues facing young “jazz” musicians. We also talked about my new album, slated for a May 2015 release!
