Notes from the Road

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you know what I’m up to. I’m currently out on tour performing with Grace Kelly’s Quintet. We had our first gig at The Domicile in Pforzheim last night.

This club has been around for 30+ years and over the years many, many greats have performed there. I was talking to the owner Axel about the players who have come through and he mentioned Woody Shaw, Nat Adderley, Joe Henderson, Dewey Redman, Maynard Ferguson, etc. There were pictures of these players on one of the walls. He lives upstairs from his club and the dressing room is up in one of his flats. He also has a nice record collection in the dressing room, which is situated more like a living room in a home.

The gig was sooo much fun, great crowd and great music. There’s always special moments happening on stage and I never know when they’ll happen so the mystery of it all is very attractive to me. It’s one of the reasons I love this music.

I think I’m going to walk along the Danube today, it’s pretty nice out!! Next stop, Ingolstadt, Germany!!

Stay tuned!

J.P.

One of the many things that I’ve been cooking up recently is a project of the music of Janelle Monae’s Archandroid album. I absolutely love this album. It’s been in my rotation since it was released and I couldn’t wait for it to come out. The music, INHO, is thoughtful, woderfully written, and Janelle’s voice is crystal clear and one of the easier voices to transcribe. When it came out I was wondering how and if I could score this music for my band. Over the past week I’ve been waking up with musical ideas that I think will do that album justice as well as settle in quite comfortably in a “jazz” setting. So far I am treating Say You’ll Go, BaBopBye Ya, Oh Maker, 57821, Sir Greendown, Locked Inside, and Wondaland to my arranging techniques. My plan is to complete the arrangements over the next 2 weeks when I’m out on tour in Europe, come back and work them with the band in November, and perhaps perform them on December 9th in NY with my band at the Jazz Gallery!! I love the Jazz Gallery. They have the best programming in the WORLD for jazz musicians and they’re the only club in NY that’ll give my band a chance, and for that, I’m GRATEFUL!!
