+ Examiner.com review of our recent show in the sfSoundSalonSeries at Center for New Music: here




Thanks to the generosity of videographer Charles Smith, some wonderful live concert video has been captured, and here's a release of some of it from the 19 Apr show at North Beach's new hotspot The Emerald Tabletwith German/Swedish avant jazz saxophonist and flautist Biggi Vinkeloe, feat. Donald Robinson (drums), Lisle Ellis (contrabass, acoustic bass guitar), Teddy Rankin-Parker (cello), and myself (piano, laptop, small percussion)

— № tre (14 min, Biggi on sax): link (my favorite, featuring Biggi's Bangalore samples)

— № uno (20 min, Biggi on sax): link

— № due (12 min, Biggi on flute): link

The luminous paintings of Monterey pines overlooking Baker Beach that you see in the background of these videos are part of the exhibit: Nicholas Coley: New California Impressionism, currently showing at The Emerald Tablet.


Hope to see you at these great shows!
