Dinner reservations encouraged: 914- 739- 4330.


Jazz at the Punchbowl!

Jazz at the Punchbowl!, 5820 Broadway, Bronx, NY

This is gonna' be a good one! We'll be at this self-proclaimed "dive bar" on November 15th at 9:00PM.  Just a couple minutes from upper Manhatten, you walk in to 100 year old history, serving bar-goers from the neighborhood and beyond. It's friendly, warm and gritty and on that night, this will be your 'smokey Jazz club', but the only smoke will come from the bandstand! Think Speakeasy era Jazz joint, except this door will be left wide open for you!

 I hope you'll join us for this intimate concert.


Quartet Jazz

12 Peekskill Lounge, 12 North Division St., Peekskill, NY

John Castleman- trumpet, flugelhorn, Rick Kriska- sax, flute, Jim West- piano, me.... and YOU!


Quartet Jazz

Beanrunner Cafe, 201 South Division St., Peekskill, NY

Make a reservation! This joint is cool and this group will be great! I am pleased and honored to play with Grammy nominated Waldron Mahdi Ricks on trumpet, Yayoi Ikawa on piano, and Kim Clarke on bass. We will share our love for the music as we render the old and the new with just under a hundred or so of our closest friends!

 I hope you're one of them. What a night we'll have!
