I’m writing a lot more music to represent my aesthetic sensibilities as an artist right now. I have two main projects, Never Weather is my quintet that I lead on drums, and I compose all of the music. The Table Trio is my vibes trio with Jeff Denson and Alan Hall, and we do mostly my originals but also some arrangements I have done of standards and pop tunes.
