FRIDAY MARCH 16th I’m back in my regular 3rd Friday slot at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown District with LATITUDE. I’ve enjoyed a lot of freedom to move around musically here and LA’s young Friday night crowds have been sticking around for the most part. Last time, I started the night by dropping the needle on Ahmad Jamal’s jazz piano classic “Poinciana”, made the trek through some UK modal jazz by way of Matthew Halsall, got into some iconic bebop material from Monk and Coltrane and on to jazzy, thoughtful hip-hop, soulful reggae and afro sounds. I also tend to touch on some disco, house and moody electronica from all over, and will occasionally throw the young weekend warriors a bone with some familiar tropical pop.
Anyway, grab some homies, come check it out and have a sip with me soon!
10PM-2AM (I usually start at 9:30)

Los Angeles, baby.
With last week’s mini vacation in the SoCal mountains, aka Big Bear, I sadly had to skip my February installment of LATITUDE at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown district. However, I’ll be back twice in the month of March, with the first getdown this FRIDAY MARCH 2ND! I’m looking forward to steering the ship all night as we once again take a dynamic trek through jazz, hip-hop and global grooves. It starts around 9:30pm (although I publish 10:00) and it’s always FREE. Wake the town and tell the people!

Had another great outing at General Lee’s in the heart of LA’s Chinatown district this past Friday night. I’m proud to say that Friday’s crowd rallied and provided a little satisfaction and validation (as well as bragging rights!) thanks to the dance cipher they had going out on the floor–my first there in the three installments of my LATITUDE event thus far!
I’ll most likely have to skip the February installment on the 16th, so I’m hoping that whoever ends up covering for me keeps the momentum and the good vibes going. Stay tuned for announcements!
