A Lot of Livin' to Do...lately!

I know I just bombarded everyone with an e-mail about last week's Album Release Party at Jazz @ Lincoln Center (still can't believe Queen Marilyn Maye sat in with us!), but there's so much more on the horizon I had to share with all of you! First things first, let me highlight some upcoming Tour Dates w/the band:

  • 2/13: Mezzrow, NYC
  • 2/14: The Side Door Jazz Club, CT *Valentine's Day ft. Alita Moses*
  • 2/16: Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival, MD ft. Alita Moses
  • 2/19: Alphabet City @ City of Asylum, PIT
  • 2/21: Minton's Harlem, NYC

I'll have copies of the new album with me at each show, and it's exciting to be debuting this music around the East Coast! I'm especially looking forward to presenting my *Hometown Album Release* on the 19th in Pittsburgh...local folks check it out:

BB3 featured in March 2020 issue of Downbeat Magazine!

What Else is New?
  • Just finished a 3-week residency w/Fashion Icon Isaac Mizrahi @ the famed Cafe Carlyle for his cabaret show "Supermodels & Movie Stars"
  • Filmed a preview of Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" w/Postmodern Jukebox founder and pianist Scott Bradlee (BB3 is back on tour w/PMJ in the US at the end of March & April)
  • Jazz @ Lincoln Center Shanghai - CANCELLED?...obviously w/the Corona virus scare in China, we are still waiting to see if my band will return to Shanghai at the end of the month - if we are unable to travel due to concerns w/the virus, we will be back later this year no doubt!
  • Filming a follow-up video w/Charlie Rosen's "8-Bit Big Band" after the success of our Portal "Still Alive" cover on Youtube (1.3 million views!?)
  • BOOKED: BB3 Quartet on the "Jazz Cruise" in 2021!
