On Sunday, January 20th, the Las Vegas Jazz Connection will be performing a CD Release Celebration Concert at the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company Theater (formerly the Reed Whipple Center) at 2:00pm. It has been an honor to perform and record with this jazz orchestra over the last 7 years, but I really think the bar has been raised with this, our third album, entitled “11.” Music Director, Nathan Tanouye, has truly outdone himself with these extraordinary compositions, and it forced all 28 of us in the band to rise to the occasion. I hope you’ll be able to join us for what is personally one of the most artistically satisfying ensembles I have ever had the pleasure of performing with.
Here’s a sneak peek of “11” with a video I put together using the first track, “Visiones de Cuba,” off the new album:
I’ll certainly keep you posted once “11” is available for purchase on iTunes and other fine retailers worldwide. And if you’re in the Vegas area on the 20th, I hope to see you at the concert! Here’s the info:
