|Thanks for Seven Great Years:
Greetings Jazz Fans –
This past weekend, July 12-13, marked the final installment of the weekend jazz program at Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.
I’d like to thank the hotel for the chance to present music in this wonderful venue for seven years. It has been a great experience for me, and I’m grateful for the opportunity. In particular, thanks to Erich Hosbach, who first conceived and implemented the program with the support of Mandarin Oriental leadership. Erich, you are the best!
Since we launched the music program in 2006, I have had the pleasure of performing with an amazing array of musicians from the DC area and beyond. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with all of these folks. Thanks for all your talent and professionalism.
Finally, I’d like to thank all of our patrons – without your continued support, none of this music would have been possible. We are currently scouting out new venues to host our program. If anyone has ideas or connections in this regard, we welcome your suggestions and assistance. Please get in touch!
Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing you all soon. First stop – Blues Alley for two shows:
Monday July 15: With the Vocal Workshop singers accompanied by Jeff Reed, bass, and Lenny Robinson, drums.
Sunday July 21: With Sharón Clark, Paul Carr, Eric Wheeler and Lenny Robinson
Look forward to seeing you soon!
All the best,
