new album on the way!

We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be releasing our third studio album — SOON!

At the end of 2011, I signed a record contract with one of my favorite independent jazz labels, the very respected Palmetto Records. At the end of October, Josh, Zach, Hamilton and I flew out to the East Coast to record what I think is our best CD yet! It’s produced by one of my favorite musicians and songwriters, the phenomenal Larry Goldings, and features some wonderful original compositions, some beautiful standards, and a few other surprises. 🙂 We even have a VERY special guest that joins us on the record. I can’t wait to share it with you!!

“Blossom & Bee” hits record stores on June 19th.

Here’s a little preview of the title track of the record — from a show we did in Los Angeles to ramp up to the session (thanks to friend John Storie for joining us that night!). Larry surprised the band (as you can tell from my laughing) by jumping up on stage for an impromptu melodica solo.
