This weekend is the premiere of a new collaboration with Dutch guitarist Marzio Scholten. Marzio and I first met a couple of years back as part of a split-gig tour and have been talking about getting something together ever since. This Saturday, we’ll be heading for Italy and Novara Jazz for a one-off gig. We’ll be bringing along both old and new compositions, many of them with a strong melodic feel, and we’ll also be doing some free improvisations.
Marzio has also invited me to play in Holland with his trio this December, we’ll be playing in Rotterdam, Tilburg and Amsterdam. Strongly looking forward to both!
