Wonderful concert series with the Hutchins Consort

Had an amazing weekend playing four concerts in three days with the world famous Hutchins Consort. Irvine, two shows in Encinitas and one in Santa Monica. Included standards arranged for THC (Vivaldi’s “Spring,” Ravel’s “Tzigane” featuring Chris Woods), Lili Boulanger’s remarkable “Un matin de Printemps” for flute and orchestra as well as four original Jimmy’s Schmendrix tunes arranged for the Schmendrix and THC. Big fun. Thanks to all of the members of THC led by Joe McNalley, as well as Lynn Willard, and Barry Wood and Mike French, recording engineers. Future audio posts will be up soon.

Traditional Avinu Malkeinu – kind of!

This performance of the traditional Kol Nidre prayer Avinu Malkeinu was taken from our Sept. 22, 2015 “Alternative Kol Nidre Service” at Congregation Beth El in La Jolla, CA. The setting is traditional but the arrangement is anything but traditional. I’m playing the bass flute, the ensemble includes violin, cello, contrabass and keyboards and the vocals are lead by Roberta Winston. I have been honored to be the Musical Director for this service since its inception eight years ago by now, most of the music that we do is my own work.  Hope you enjoy this performance. I’m writing grants right now to try and get a commercial recording of this music released on CD. Wish me luck! If there are any angels out there who would like to step up with some funding, please reach out to me.
