Moved to Portland!
In January 2020 I moved to Portland, where I was meeting some great musicians when Covid-19 came. I am hoping to restart the band in the future. Check out this site for information and music from Portland, Eugene, and Seattle.
—Jazz Flute Project
New as of August 2022: Joplin Rags arranged for flute duet
I recently arranged two Joplin piano rags for two flutes: The Cascades and Solace: A Mexican Serenade. The sheet music is available at:

Jazz Flute Project features the flute and a revolving cast of rhythm section players, usually a quartet or a trio.
I started the project in Seattle in 2012, with Kurt, Barry, and Rogene (pictured below). We made some recordings and played a few gigs in Seattle.
In September 2014, I moved to Eugene, Oregon. Just before I left, I recorded some more music with Greg Bumpus on piano, Greg Domingo on acoustic bass, and Bob Chester on drums.
A move to Portland, Oregon in 2020 coincided with the Covid pandemic, which made it unfeasible to start up the band in Portland. In lieu of a recording session with live musicians, I made a collection of studio recordings accompanied by pre-recorded backing tracks: The Covid Blues.
