Meanwhile …

Brooklyn Raga Massive’s record “In D” is out, and it’s quite amazing. I feel very fortunate to be a part of it. You can find it here: https://brooklynragamassive.bandcamp.com/album/in-d 

** Several other new recordings have dropped this year (Get Open, Filtron M, Jennifer Porter … ) Look out for details about platforms where you can experience them!

By the way …

Last year, I officially co-founded “Creative Strings Improvisers Ensemble LLC” with my wife, the amazing violinist / composer Gwen Laster. We are an El Sistema  affiliated program, and we are “off and running” creating masterclasses, workshops, virtual concerts and professional development workshops for music instructors. If you are a parent, educator or independent school organization - and are seeking a progressive, well-rounded musical experience for young musicians - go to our links, and consider enrolling your young, creative music students in our program. We would love to work with them!
