  • March 2014

    I hope you're getting a chance to thaw (or unthaw, as we used to say in Baltimore) after the preceding winter of our discontent and whatnot.

    True to form and just like usual I've some gigs coming up soon, so here is some short notice.

    This afternoon, 3/14 I'll be joining Todd Harper at his regular post at the Black Dog. Todd and I have been friends and collaborators for a long time. We always have a great time together, and today will be no exception. The riverbanks will talk of the waters of March, the end of the strain, the joy in your heart. 

    Todd Harper, piano, voice, exhuberance; Nathan Hanson, soprano saxophone

    Monday March 17 Fantastic Merlins will be celebrating a belated St. Urho's Day in recognition of the driving of the grasshoppers out of Finland. There may or may not be other Saints who drove other things out of other places celebrated too. You just never know what will happen when Fantastic Merlins play at the Black Dog! You can predict however that the Black Dog will have its Monday special--buy a bottle of wine (or four beers) and get a pizza free!

    Friday March 21 I am thrilled to be playing again withAnne La Berge, a phenomenal flautist from Amsterdam (the one in the Netherlands) as she joins Fifth Column at Studio Z. I love every chance to play with Fifth Column, and having Anne join us will be electric! Anne is a really captivating performer who incorporates flute virtuosity with computer-based electronic music. She is a dazzling improviser and we are in for a real treat.

    Fifth Column is Scott Miller, electronics; Brett Wartchow, electronics; Pat O'Keefe, clarinet/bass clarinet/soprano saxophone; and Nathan Hanson, soprano and tenor saxophones.
