DTM will be back around December. Probably I’ll be tweeting once in a while. The newsletter, Floyd Camembert Reports, will include an “email lesson about blues piano” composed for my NEC students for while I’m away on tour.

Tomorrow, October 25, Mark Turner and I play duo at Mezzrow.

November 22 I’ll be playing a standards gig with Ben Street and Eric McPherson as part of Konceptions Music Series at Korzo. We are at 9, the estimable Ches Smith is at 10:30. This is kind of a warm up for January 24-19, when the Iverson/Street/McPherson trio joins forces with Tom Harrell at the Village Vanguard.

The Bad Plus will be on tour in November and December, including a stop at a new (to us) NYC venue, Rough Trade on November 21.

The new site has been reasonably busy since opening doors in late April. Thanks for reading.
