Improvisatory gymnasiums are all the rage in New Orleans. This one, Instant Opus, is increasingly well kitted out. I am happy to continue the challenge of providing sound exploration for the audiences that have emerged because of the hard work of folks like Jason Van Ness (Instant Opus series), Jeff Albert (Open Ears), Benjamin Lyons (Valid Records), Andy Durta (scatterjazz), and Rob Cambre (anxious Sound).
I am looking forward to working with Albey Balgochian, we have only met and I can tell that there is so much there to connect with. Julian Garcia is a great old musical associate that I have done things with since the early 90s, but now it has been over 20 years. He is playing with one of my main musical mentors now. I look forward to hearing Noelle Tannen too.
