Welcome and thanks for stopping by my site. I hope you enjoy looking around and hope you will take the time to also visit the website of my studio at the University of Alabama - www.rollslide.com. I hope to keep the calendar up to date with information about performances and masterclasses in Tuscaloosa and throughout the country.
2013 is shaping up to be an extremely rewarding year with many exciting performances and projects on the books. I am thrilled to be collaborating with my good friends and heroes Joseph Alessi and Peter Ellefson on a new concerto that I commissioned for 3 trombones and band by James Stephenson. The premiere will be at Alabama on March 11 and it will also be performed at this year's Eastern Trombone Workshop.
I am also happy to be working with Anthony Barfield on a new recording project with the UA Wind Ensemble. "Red Sky" was recorded on April 27 at UA and will be released later this year!
I am happy to announce that I have recently completed recording sessions with pianist, Kevin Chance, for a new solo cd including works by Carlos Salzedo, Anthony Barfield, Gustav Mahler, Nickitas Demos and Eric Ewazen. I hope to have this project entitled "Nature's Gift" released by the first of the year.
