Lots of News Since 2015!

I realized as I opened my website that I haven't posted anything here since January 2015! That is absolutely unacceptable! 

So a quick catch up: I am now living in Las Vegas, and am the Assistant Buyer and Musical Director for the Big Blues Bender, one of the hottest festivals on the planet. I left my beloved New Orleans for love, having met a wonderful woman here in Vegas. This has led to all kinds of new ventures. In addition to the Bender, I am playing gigs and touring under my own name for the first time. I was nominated for my 3rd BMA for Instrumentalist/Horn this year, and Carrie and I traveled to Memphis in May for the award ceremony.

The 2018 Bender was a resounding success, due in no small part to the ubiquitous Bender Brass! I am honored to lead this fine ensemble, and we are very busy during the festival.

My latest CD, Jimmy Plays the Blues, continues to get rave reviews, and I will have plenty on the midwestern tour next week.

There's more, but I will do my best to keep up here and not wait 3 years to post again!
