Excited to share that my Fulbright Senior Specialist status has be renewed and that I will be teaching at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire (Wikipedia site) located in Tbilisi, Georgia (that’s the Republic of Georgia, bordering on Armenia, Azerbaijan and southern Russia). I will also be performing at the Kavkaz Jazz Festival in Tbilisi. Joining me will be guitarist Craig Wagner and journalist Marty Rosen.
A major feature of my work will be to act in the role of coordinator/mediator, bringing together musicians from Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and others from throughout the region thru playing jazz. Master classes and joint ensembles will be offered. It is an exciting time and Marty will help document the endeavor with print articles, video, photos and social media.
Thanks to the Fulbright Senior Specialist program; Reso Kiknadze, Rector, Tbilisi State Conservatoire; Dean Christopher Doane, UofL School of Music; Bruce Kemelgore, UofL School of Business; ArtsLink; and Helen Mechitova, Kavkaz Festival coordinator, whose vision made this all possible.
Look for articles, video/photos and other related materials soon.

Great time visiting friends and playing music in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Ayr, London, Cotswolds, Milton Keynes and more. Hard to believe my first visit to the UK was in 1986, when I first met so many friends. Thanks Donnie and Doreen Ross, Nick and Jane Gould, Colin and Patricia MacKay and Jane Sheppard. Special thanks to Bill Kyle and the Jazz Bar and Colin for coordinating concerts and master classes. Check out the photos to get an idea of the fun time.
