"For most of 2009 I had a weekly gig at a club in the city with steve hunter, where we played with various drummers. we drew from an extensive repetoire of songs, ranging from originals through to classic tunes from bill evans, herbie, and chick corea, while also checking out the modern repetoire of joshua redman, pat metheny and kurt rosenwinkel. this trio worked well in a quiet setting, as we had noise restrictions as well, so for this gig ive booked steve hunter and jim piesse, an incredible drummer. it will be very cool."
