Rubbertellie in Action!

Having heard Jon’s Rubbertellie on Dedications: Faces and Places, his CD with Bill Frisell, folks are always curious about what the Rubbertellie actually is! What does it look like? Well there is a YouTube link that shows Rubbetellie in action with Jon playing Brother Sharpe, a cut from the Dedications CD. The concert performance was at Bishop’s University in Quebec, Canada.

The Creative Workshop in Italy

Some of my fun experiences during the Umbrian Jazz Festival can be found in an article I recently wrote for BT, an alumni magazine published by Berklee College of Music.

“A Perugian Recipe” takes a look at the people, the food and the landscape of Italy and how these elements inspired the Creative Workshop Ensembles and Master Classes I conducted as part of Berklee’s Umbria Jazz clinics.

If you are not able to get a hard copy of the magazine, here is the link for the article. Check out the pasta in the graphic!
