What's in a jam?
I've been playing at dance jams in Western Massachusetts since the mid 90's. People of all ages gather in big, open spaces, take off their shoes, and move for a few hours at a time to live music. Playing for dance jams has become an artistic/spiritual practice for me, and many of my recordings are taken directly from the jams. While playing solo cello and other instruments, I accumulate notes and rhythms with what's commonly referred to as a "looper". Loopers are electronics that record and play back what I just played so I'll have me to play along with as I weave together multiple layers of music for the dancers.
Post COVID I'll be available to Jam in your community world wide!
