The “Alamo Stomp” in San Antonio was a lot of fun.  The Jonathan Doyle Swingtet packed the house and the dancers called for more, and more, and more…

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.

While I am home, Alex and Mittens are reacting to the return of winter weather in different ways:
Grecian Urn


Sink Tux

Unfortunately, I won’t see as much of them next month, as I will be quite a bit busier.  Check my SCHEDULE page for a list of my engagements.
