New video: Moksha with Peter Apfelbaum, Jen Hartswick, and Skerik!

Here’s a video from the Moksha gig on Friday at Las Vegas Country Saloon. This is from Christian McBride’s “Technicolor Nightmare.” Jen Hartswick’s on trumpet, Peter Apfelbaum and Skerik are on tenor, and I’m playing bari. Enjoy!

Listen to the World Premiere of Moksha’s ‘Here To Go’ album this Sunday



Moksha’s new album, “Here To Go”, will be premiered tomorrow, July 17, on 91.5 fm KUNV on a show called The Lyons Den. The show is on from 7-11 pm PDT and we’ll be in the studio with the host, George Lyons, talking about the album.

I’m really proud of this album. I played baritone saxophone on 4 tracks and was joined by Peter Apfelbaum, Bill Ortiz, and Jeff Cressman in the horn section. Peter wrote the horn parts and they are killing!

You can listen to the premiere on KUNV’s streaming broadcast here.

Here are some links to the band and musicians involved with the album:

Upcoming Moksha Tour Dates

Moksha will be hitting the road on Wednesday (7/28) for a two-week tour of California. We just played on the rooftop of Binion’s Horseshoe Casino on Fremont St. in Las Vegas this past weekend. The shows were a lot of fun with great crowds (good numbers and good people!). Moksha has a base of really dedicated fans who really support us a lot. We couldn’t do what we do without them.

As for the tour, I will be joining the band for dates in Berkeley, CA on August 5-7. We’ll be playing at Blakes on Telegraph for the Phish Aftershow Party. The rest of the horn section will include Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band) on trumpet and Jeff Cressman (Santana) on trombone.
