I am thrilled that on July 10th Righteous Girls are releasing their debut album, Gathering Blue, on New Focus Recordings . It contains works by Andy Akiho, Akinmusire, Pascal Le Boeuf,  Vijay Iyer, Dave Molk, Mike Perdue, Jonathan Ragonese, and Randy Woolf, as well as my own “For Milton,” an homage to Milton Babbitt that is influenced in equal parts by jazz and serialism. Gathering Blue received a NewMusic USA Project Grant, a very competitive award to garner. There will be a release party for the CD at Joe’s Pub on August 7th, followed by a tour supporting the CD with dates in Washington DC, Baltimore MD, and Carrboro NC.
