He performs regularly as a sideman with ensembles including Slavic Soul Party!, Justin Mullen's Delphian Jazz Orchestra, Cynthia Hopkins, the Stagger Back Brass Band, Romashka, and One Ring Zero. He leads his own trio, performing original music, seeking to mingle the melodic and rhythmic turns particular to the folk music of Eastern Europe and the Middle East with the improvisational spontaneity and harmonic openness of jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
