We have a rare weekday performance this Tuesday at noon in Downtown LA. GF3 has been invited to perform in a holiday jazz series sponsored by ArtsBrookfield. We will be doing a 45-minute set, opening for a great band, NYC-based pianist Helen Sung, with Inga Swearingen on vocals, Hamilton Price on bass and Marvin “Smitty” Smith on drums. Helen is an incredible pianist and I’m really looking forward to hearing her group.
As for us, we’ll be playing music from our upcoming project, which has been put on hold for the holidays but we will resume recording in January when JP gets back from the Phillipines. We might throw in one of my holiday arrangements as well. Many thanks to the Jazz Cat, LeRoy Downs, KKJZ radio personality and the best MC in jazz for curating this series and continuing to find new ways to bang the drum loudly for jazz artists in LA and beyond.
