I am very proud of flutist Gina Izzo and pianist Erika Dohi. Their duo, known as Righteous Girls, performs twice in Japan this week. They are presenting their Gathering Blue project, recorded on New Focus Records, at Horie Arte, 1-18-17 Kita-Horie, Osaka, Japan, on June 3rd and 5th at 7:30 PM.
Gathering Blue features composers Ambrose Akinmusire, Andy Akiho, Dave Molk, Jonathan Ragonese, Pascal Le Bouef, Randy Woolf, and Vijay Iyer. Gina and Erika have also included my duo “For Milton:” an homage to Milton Babbitt that mixes serial outer sections with a slice of swing in the middle.
I’m excited to have my music visit Japan: I hope to get there myself someday!
This Friday at Joe’s Pub, Righteous Girls celebrate the release of their New Focus CD gathering blue, which contains my composition For Milton. Doors open at 6 and the show is at 7 PM (Get tickets here).
New tour date for Righteous Girls, this one back in NYC.
