Calendar of Events




On the in-person front, the world has reopened to a new normal, a hopefully better version, Normal 2.0!  So that, crucially, live music, art exhibits, poetry readings, and book events are once again connecting us face to face, with a new appreciation for the fragility of this world.

Last summer I had the privilege of taking part in Kansas City's citywide reopening of its historic jazz clubs, which all happened on the first weekend in June 2021. My very first public gig in KC, and since lock down, was on June 5 (after transplanting from Los Angeles exactly one year before, TO THE DATE), with the
Charles Williams Quintet at THE BLUE ROOM AT THE AMERICAN JAZZ MUSEUM in the historic 18th & Vine District.  Like riding a bike.  Or close enough.
But we're not out of this hairy Covid situation quite yet, so for public performances, please be prepared (in ANY case) with proof of vaccination, matching ID, and masks, as each venue is still conducting differing levels of safety protocols.  As always, be safe and stay safe. Keep others safe too.
