I am very happy to announce the release of a new CD
“Near and Far KJB”
Kazumi Ikenaga … drums
John Lockwood … bass
Bert Seager … piano
This is the third CD that this trio had recorded and released. It features many more of my original tunes (7 of 10) than the previous CDs did. That is because I have written so many more tunes lately … see the news posting below this one called “The MacDowell Colony.”
Every year for the past eleven years, my good friend Kazumi has invited me to come to Japan to go on a two week club/concert tour with him that he sets up for us. Kazumi, who I met and played with in Boston almost 20 years ago, moved back to Japan after college here (Berklee College of Music) and a few years in New York City. He is a very sensitive and talented drummer. We have played a lot together over the years and it shows in our musical rapport.
John Lockwood, bassist in KJB. and I have played together nearly every weekend for the past six years, and we have been playing in many contexts together here in Boston for the past 25 years. Our friendship and easy communication is evident in this music as well.
