January Happenings!

Happy New year All! I hope this finds you well, and brings you a year of happiness and peace and friendship in unexpected places! I feel so grateful for the amazing family and friends and music and art community around me, and am looking forward to personal growth and new creative adventures this year!

I just arrived in Seattle, WA to work on a new project with the TIPTONS SAXOPHONE QUARTET, MYTHUNDERSTANDINGS, and we will be playing some shows around Seattle of our more standard fare.
Wednesday will be a new improvising group, SLINGSHOT SONGS with lots of great Seattle players. Back east at the end of the month , our new Sephardic music project SOPHIE SALONIKA with my musical conspirer Katie Down with have our first show, and the AYN SOF Jewish Bigger Band has come out of hibernation, for a great double bill with Jon Madof’s ZION80 Afro-beat band. Check the calendar for details.

Hope to see you at one of the shows! Peace and thanks, Jessica
