No New Year's resolutions this year, just gratefulness for so many new friends, musical encounters, and inspiring projects, can't wait to see what 2024 has in store.
Some of my favorite 2023 moments:

Thanks to all of you who were part of the journey and who allow me to connect via this newsletter. I love to hear your updates and feedback - email any time.
Look for a Kickstarter Campaign in January to pre-order the upcoming Sheroes album and help us cover the production costs. And I hope to see many friends at the Columbus Philharmonic Jazz at Helen's Series January 19 and 20 with Alexis Cole, Jeremy Allen, Peter Kienle, and Cassius Goens or January 12 at the Chatterbox with the Acoustic Project.
