Debuting a fun project with Kim Bursic where she paints and I play. We met over zoom when I signed up for her “sketch to paint” class. We’ve had so many great conversations about process and movement, and I am thrilled to have this recording of our first duo together.
Debuts 9/28 at noon. Grab a sandwich and check it out!
Clarice ends her first trip to Washington, D.C. with a quick jam session before catching the train to New York. Clarice performs on AmyAna’s debut record, and has her own channel where you can see her pandeiro tutorials and more performances youtube.com/claricecast
I asked Melinda to meet me halfway. We improvised in the sunshine in front of a lighthouse in havre de grace. Neither of us had been there before, and we hadn’t seen each other in the flesh since February 2020. Melinda brought cameras (and snacks because she is always prepared for a picnic), and I brought a little microphone. We played for awhile without any preconceived notions (just the motion of the ocean). Then we added more. More violins to harmonize with the dogs, more voices to harmonize with ourselves, more synths to harmonize with the boats, and videos of the dog/ourselves/boats. If you are free tonight (or in the future since the internet is elusive and apparently timeless) tune in and get a piece of the peace we felt.
The mail has been extremely disappointing lately, gobbling up almost every big check I’ve been waiting for, including an “emergency grant” for over $5K that I still haven’t received, issued in November 2020. Anyway, because I am who I am, I wrote a waltz about it, and you can hear it here, debuting tonight.
It’s been a rough one. As we are wrapping it up, please consider Washington Women in Jazz in your year-end giving. We are pivoting to a virtual festival in 2021, creating amazing new collaborations with Key of She Jazz, and Mujeres de Iberoamerica en el jazz.
As strange as it seems I am excited. Excited to share our music on the global stage and to strengthen our awesome community. We will be there for you in the months ahead, and we appreciate you being there for us. (Also we have lovely thank you gifts
Happy almost November! Holidays are right around the corner, and I’ve got a treat for you- personalized vinyl records! Each record contains a one-of-a-kind live take, made specifically and individually for each person that orders. All of these records are in effect masters with no other copies made. The records aren’t mass produced, dubbed, copied, etc. and they each contain a different live performance that exists nowhere else in the world. Think of these records like audio polaroids…each individual from one another and 100% one-of-a-kind. Pick one of three songs, and leave me a note if the record is cut for you, or a gift to someone (or maybe you want me to tell an amazing joke at the end…) A great way to send a little love to someone you care about.
Hi everybody! My new single “Let’s make a change” is coming out Monday at 3pm on youtube. Join me for the party and live chat here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9K7tRsVwog and I’ll be going live after to talk best chords, WWJF tshirts, voter registration deadlines, and how much I love the DC gogo census song. Can’t wait to hear from you!
