Gigs in DC, Greenbelt, NC, Florida, and Berlin 

Gigs in DC, Greenbelt, NC, Florida, and Berlin?

 

Okay...that's MOSTLY true.  I AM doing public shows in MOST of those places this month.  But not Berlin.  But I am playing a "Salute to Irving Berlin" show in DC, so that counts, right?

Rare Mid-Atlantic performances for blues legend Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges 

Two shows with Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges! 

I've had the privilege of knowing and making music with international blues star Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges for close to 20 years now.  I've arranged the horn parts on several of his albums, recorded with him, and, when the stars aligned, shared a stage with him.  But the last time I had the thrill of performing with him live was in July 2016. 

That changes next week with two VERY rare appearances of this globe-trotting bluesman in the Washington and Baltimore…

Seth's Magical Musical Multiverse 

New digital EP is OUT TODAY!!! 

"Seth's Magical Musical Multiverse" is a digital-only EP of 3 original songs that imagine some radical musical "what-if" scenarios.  What if Buddy Holly hadn't boarded that plane on a fateful night in February 1959?  What if George Gershwin hadn't had his magnificent career cut short by a brain tumor when he was just 38 years old?  What if Robert Johnson hadn't taken a sip of some poison whiskey in that Mississippi juke joint?  Featuring the talents of some of the…

A brand-new (digital) album released today! 

It's release day!!! 

I'm proud to announce that, as of this morning, my BRAND NEW album, "Clarinetflix & Chill," is available pretty much everywhere music can be downloaded or streamed in the digital multiverse! It features five brand-new original instrumental compositions by yours truly drawing upon a variety of musical influences, not the least of which are swing and klezmer. It was all recorded "live in the studio," as they say, in a single afternoon. 

All else being equal, please download the tracks…

Brand new song and video...for a good cause 

Brand new song & video 

I wasn't planning on dropping this track just yet, but it seemed timely to do so now. I wrote this song in late 2021 and filmed the video in January, well before any inkling of a Russian invasion of Ukraine had even crossed my radar. 

This song and performance will be part of my upcoming digital-only album "Clarinetflix & Chill," scheduled to be released on all major platforms on Friday, March 18. 

Gaisin is the small Ukrainian village where my grandfather was born and spent his…

This is a really cool room, with great local art and extremely tasty libations. I'll be there with pianist Sean Lane. There's no cover, so if you're in Charm City -- swing on by! I heartily endorse their "Epoch Rye Whiskey," although I'm not completely sure how…

It's a Hanukkah miracle! 

Come watch Michael Raitzyk and myself exploit our talented children! 

Wednesday, December 1 at An die Musik Live! 

It's the return of a Baltimore Hanukkah tradition -- this time with a twist! 

For many years, I presented a Hanukkah show at An die Musik, one of Baltimore's premier live music venues. Needless to say, we skipped last year's show. Well, this year, we're back! And this time, I decided to invite multi-genre guitar whiz Michael Raitzyk to join me, along with his ridiculously-talented violinist…
