Dweezil Zappa and I had a fantastic group to work with during the 2015 Crown Guitar Festival. We had a great time sharing our ideas about improvisation and performance throughout the week. It was an inspiring week of collaboration and creativity.
Recording in the studio with drummer Nate Wood and bassist Sam Minaie. Just finished recording an entire album of all original material.
Had a chance to spend some time with one of my old friends from Paris and one of my favorite musicians on the planet. - Nelson Veras. Check out his incredible records! If you haven't heard him play the guitar, it is really worth checking out.
I just arrived back from Italy playing a concert with my trio and giving a 3 day guitar workshop at Komel Contemporary. Special thanks to Italian guitarist Jan Sturiale for organizing this event. I had a great group of guitarists attending the workshop and it was a pleasure getting to know everyone there. It is always inspiring getting together with other guitarists, working through ideas and answering questions. We covered a lot of topics and got into some serious detail throughout our 3 days together.
I had a fantastic couple of days playing and hanging out with my friend Dweezil Zappa. I played a tune with his incredible group Zappa Plays Zappa on April 12th. We played the Frank Zappa piece "Cosmic Debris" and traded choruses over a blues. Dweezil and I always have a great time playing together and interacting musically onstage. Here is a photo backstage before the show!
On April 13th, I hosted a clinic with Dweezil at Berklee College of Music. It was great to sit in and listen to all of the creative things that he had to say about making music!
Stay tuned for more musical projects with Dweezil soon!
