There are only 11 days left in 2012. The year has absolutely flown by! But it’s been a year full of so many wonderful experiences and opportunities. Here’s a snapshot of just a few.
This year, we won the Phoenix’s Best Jazz Act poll. It was such an honor to be voted to top act by fans and friends. We could not have won without your support (and votes!).
This summer, we recorded and released a new album, Act Naturally, in Japan. With that CD release, we had not one but two tours in Japan. On top of that, we had the honor of performing in Tokyo’s famed Cotton Club.
We returned to both Regattabar and Scullers, which by the way was filmed and being edited right now, in 2012. In the summer, we participated in Downtown Crossing’s summer series and made our debut at the Shalin Liu in Rockport. We also played at the Mount Auburn Club this fall. All on top of our residencies at Les Zygomates and Ryles.
Interviews and Press
We had a lot of press this year. We were live on WICN last month, and we interviewed in several Japanese publications for our new album. Plus our Scullers performance was highlighted in the Boston Globe’s Fall Arts Preview. Jazziz featured us twice this year, too.
In addition to our residencies at Ryles and Les Zygomates we have some exciting concerts coming up in 2013 including the Sahara Club in January and a new project of the Yoko Miwa Trio with Special Guest Rebecca Parris. This group is already booked at the Shalin Liu on February 15 but we plan to do a mini tour in the greater New England area so stay posted.
Happy holidays and see you all in 2013!
