East Coast. Kimbra, Snarky Puppy, Creepy Hotels.

We just finished a great run of shows on the east coast. We started in Philly at the World Cafe. Great first show there – we’ve been wanting to come to the World cafe for a long time. And Philly too. We all need to be there more. So we will be anyhow… Friday we made it to Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. This was a great night. Tiny Hazard opened. They sound fantastic. Then we performed a collaboration set with Kimbra. She is the real deal. Please check out her latest album “The Golden Echo”. Kaveh helped out with some bass and co writing on the song “Love In High Places”. We headed to Boston after that with shows at the Bean Town Jazz Festival and then a set opening for Snarky Puppy at Berklee Performance Center. Snarky destroyed. It was great to see those guys and hear a band who plays so much like them play together. It’s our third time back to Boston in a year and it is feeling more and more like we have a home there and are building something special. We closed the tour out with a show at the Iron Horse in Northamton. Beautiful classic venue and we hope to come back soon! That night we stayed at a hotel in Hartford that should be called the Murder Inn. Creepy place but we pulled through!

Northwest and Paris with the Bad Plus and Joshua Redman

Last week we had a quick but fantastic trip where we headed to the Triple Door in Seattle and then Salem Oregon to play at Willamette University. It’s our third time in the Pacific Northwest in the last year and we’re psyched to keep getting back there. It feels like we’re building something there. After Salem we flew to Paris to play the Jazz a La Villette Festival. The bill also featured Joshua Redman with the Bad Plus. It was an incredible night of music and you can actually watch our concert here.

Also here’s a pic of us and The Bad Plus after our set. These guys are a huge inspiration and are cool dudes as well.
