I'm very excited to play with Migration at the great Jazz Standard in New York City September 1-4 of 2016. This is the last NY area performance of the year and also the last chance to hear and see the Meridian Suite live. Hope you can join us.

I've been honored with another huge landmark in my career with my 2nd Modern Drummer cover feature. It's been 10 years since the 1st one and a lot has happened since. Thanks to Michael Parillo, Adam Budofsky and the whole MD staff for this great honor!
It’s a huge honor to be featured on the cover of Downbeat Magazine. This is a huge landmark in my career as a composer and musician and it's a huge honor to be in the company of all the jazz giants that have graced the cover of this historic magazine that has been around since the 30's. Thank you Ken Micallef for the great interview and article!
I’m very excited that my new album The Meridian Suite comes out on June 9th.
Here is the EPK of the recording session.
This album is my most ambitious project to date. It's a 56 minute continuous composition that features my band Migration and it explores the concept of Meridians: imaginary lines that flow through the earth, celestial sphere and our bodies. In this piece I try to to portray how these lines exist and live all around us even though they can’t really be seen or touched. I wanted to create imaginary lines in which motifs, emotions, ideas and melodies flow, meet and intertwine. The way Meridians do.
You can pre-order it on iTunes.
The official CD release party will be at Subculture in NYC on June 19th. You can get your tickets by clicking here.
We will be touring this project with my band Migration in the US and Europe starting in June and will go all the way to December visiting many countries along the way.
Also a great honor to be featured on the cover of DRUMHEAD Magazine
