I had the honor playing chromatic harmonica as a special guest on the amazing Pedrito Martinez' CD. Titled "The Pedrito Martinez Group", the album was produced by Pedrito Martinez and Steve Gadd and was released by Motema Records on October 9, 2013. Other special guests on the album include, Wynton Marsalis, John Scofield, and Steve Gadd.
I recently co-wrote (with fellow Emmy-award winning composer, William Electric Black) songs for the show, "American Star!!" which had its NYC premiere and first run at the Theater for the New City in April 2013. I was also the musical director, and enjoyed rehearsing the actors and performing with our band on stage each night.
I played my chromatic harmonica for Sting's Rainforest Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall on April 3, 2012. A magical evening! As a featured guest artist, I played two songs onstage with Rosanne Cash and orchestra. Later in the night, I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Elton John; accompanied by full orchestra we performed a duet of "Moon River. A night to remember.
