The day following the Alamo Stomp, I recorded with a band led by guitarist Brooks Prumo, which included David Jellema and Oliver Steck, cornets; Mark Gonzales, trombone; Jonathan Doyle and Lauryn Gould, reeds; Kris Tokarski, piano; Ryan Gould, bass; me on drums and the inestimable vocalist Alice Spencer. I recorded two sessions in the latter part of 2019; one with Michael Gamble’s Rhythm Serenaders and a second with Tim Laughlin. As soon as all these recordings are available, I will post ordering information on this website.
Next week, I return to Texas for a doubleheader with Floyd Domino’s All-Stars. This is one of my favorite groups to work with, and I wish we had more opportunities to play.
