Hey folks. It's been a relatively quiet summer for us. . .
. . . but, if you are dying for some Pulse-related events, I'm involved in a handful of cool gigs over the next month or so.
The Schumacher/Sanford Sound Assembly
Saturday, September 16
Spark Arts Center
161 West 22nd St.
(Bet. 6th & 7th Aves – inside the Café!)
Sound Assembly is:
John Hollenbeck – drums
Dave Ambrosio – bass
Deanna Witkowski – piano
Andrew Green – guitar
Dan Willis, Eric Rasmussen, Chris Bacas, Ben Kono, Kenny Berger – woodwinds
John Hines, Jason Aspinwall, Dave Rezek, Jason Colby – trumpets
Mark Patterson, Mike Fahie, Lolly Bienenfeld, Chris Olness - trombones
David Schumacher, JC Sanford - composers, conductors
(Dan WIllis and Ben Kono are both frequent Pulse Ensemble members, and Deanna Witkowski has helped us out on various rehearsals playing harp parts and whatnot on keyboard.)
We’ll play music from our upcoming CD, some of our more obscure charts, as well as a few premieres.
Check out our website for some clips from the upcoming album.
Also check out our new MySpace page with full length tracks.
The following week, I'm playing my first gig with John McNeil's great band, Insomnia.
(John, of course, is our collaborator on the Eloquent Light series.)
John McNeil's Insomnia
