I just updated 32 new gigs to my calendar reaching from April to November. In the spring I will release a new duo CD with guitarist Lorenzo Cominoli and myself. I’m working right now on the production and the release will be on the 19th of April. The release gig is schedule for 19th at the Borgomanero Jazz Festival in Italy. (Let’s see how things go now due to the Corona virus) I’ll keep you updated. I’m very happy with the music on the CD and it is a mixture of original melodic compositions and free improvisation. I will release it on my label Abovoice and naturally it will be also on all streaming platforms. You can buy the CD from For the summer we will also do a special vinyl edition of the record. We will do gigs with this music in Italy between 19th-24th of April in Northern Italy.

In May I will spend 2-3 weeks in Japan playing mostly in the Tokyo area. Please check my calendar of where and when and with who! Looking forward to this as always and I’m also looking forward to connect with new people for future exciting projects. I will be perfroming with many fantastic Japanese musicians and my old friend and colleague Emil Hess will also join me on some gigs.

I will write later about my summer projects and also about the exciting new projects and tours with Brittish musicians in the fall.
