I am beyond excited about my quartet's Midwest tour starting on September 7th! Big thanks to South Arts for awarding me their Jazz Road Tours grant!

Hope to see some of you in the first weeks of September up there! This tour is made possible with the support of Jazz Road, a national initiative of South Arts, which is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
