Had a great time performing Brazillian music with the band Casulo at the Cadillac Hotel. Thanks to Katherine Looper for inviting us to perform in this beautiful space. Also, I had a chance to visit the Tenderloin museum next door and enjoyed learning about one of San Francisco's most interesting neighborhoods the TL. Lots of fascinating history around strong independent women, LGTBQ activisim, housing rights, vice, and immigrant communities. I highly recommend visiting this museum if you get a chance (located at 398 Eddy St.)
What a great experience playing with all these bassists.
Thanks to Matt Montgomery for taking this photo.
Thanks to Bill Noertker for sharing this drop box link to audio samples of the performance.
I've been listening to this great Wayne Shorter tune in my car and decided to transcribe it. Check it out.
Had a great time playing a tribute concert to the late great vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson who was one of my main inspirations for playing Jazz. Thanks and gratitude towards his son Barry for putting together a killer band.

Rooted in the classic swing music of the late 1930s, "Swings Left" plays the tunes of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, as well as many of Rob's original tunes in this style, combining hot rhythms with a cool sensibility.
