So, for a last questionwhat's next? Do you have any plans to record again with Avishai Cohen
? Can you talk a little about Beat Music Productions, any touring plans? MG:
No plans to record with Avishai in the near future. What's next for me? I have two of my own albums coming out and I'm starting my own label (Beat Music Productions). These albums will come out soon. I'm playing gigs around them with two different ensembles that both have an electronic influence. I also have an acoustic quartet that I wrote repertoire for, and we're playing a bunch of gigs in the fall. I want to record this group by the end of the year, and put the album out the following year.
Brad and I have been touring consistently, and I have two gigs with Donny McCaslin
and his band coming up as well. We recorded Donny's new record a few months ago, I'm not sure when that will be coming out. So, I'll be with Donny a little bit and with Jason Lindner
's group a little bit as well. I'm doing a workshop series this Fall in New York City
, two Saturdays each month, where I'm presenting different topics and including different guests. So, I've got my stuff spread out, but it feels good to be releasing new music while I'm building this new company as well.
