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…

The world is no longer safe from my clarinet... 

Baltimore & Greenbelt 

Thursday, February 17 

Baltimore Spirits Company! 

This Thursday, February 17, from 6:30 to 9 pm, I'll be providing the music in the posh "Cocktail Gallery" at the Baltimore Spirits Company in the Union Collective in Baltimore. 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…

Annapolis and North Carolina 

Friday, January 21 at 49 West Coffeehouse & Winebar 

In-person ONLY!! Reservations required!! 

It's been quite some time since I made an appearance at Annapolis' finest listening room for live jazz, 49 West Coffeehouse & Winebar, coincidentally located at 49 West Street in Annapolis. But I'm delighted to be returning there a week from today with my good friends, and musical co-conspirators, Sean Lane (piano), and Bob Abbott (double bass). We've got loads of jazz and klezmer up our sleeves, just waiting to…

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…

Thursday, November 18, at the Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center 

In a little over a week, I'll be reprising my epic all-star "Tribute to the Brothers Gershwin." This time, we'll be doing it in our nation's capital, in the newly-renovated Cafritz Hall at the Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center, just a few blocks from Dupont Circle. 

Joining me again will be a s'wonderful group of musicians, including pianist Sean Lane, bassist Bob Abbott…

It Don't Mean A Thing If You Ain't Got That Ticket 

One week from today, at 7:30 pm! 

I'm once again returning to the swankiest club anywhere that will still admit YOU as a patron! 

And this time, I'll be paying tribute to the legendary Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, as well as his protege and songwriting partner, William Thomas "Billy" Strayhorn. 

Two ways to enjoy this show: 

1) Live and in-person! Drive, walk, run, or "take a train," and come see us in person, and enjoy the food, drink, and atmosphere of Keystone Korner Baltimore! It's reserved seating…

Live and on-line with Daryl Davis and a gig in NY! 

A duo show with the legendary Daryl Davis! 

(and a quick jaunt up to New York) 

This Thursday, August 5, at 7 pm! 

Many of you may already be familiar with Daryl Davis. Perhaps you know him as one the best blues and boogie-woogie pianists anywhere. Perhaps you've seen him play live with Chuck Berry or any other of a host of musical luminaries. Or maybe you've heard or read about some of his other activities. 

In any event, he's one of my oldest friends and musical collaborators and we always have a blast…

The things that you're liable to hear from Seth Kibel... 

It's a Gershwin-win situation... 

Live, in-person OR a virtual livestream! 

"It ain't necessarily so. It ain't necessarily so. The things that you're liable to hear from Seth Kibel -- they ain't necessarily so." 

I'm super-excited to present an evening of music consisting entirely of American classics by George and Ira Gershwin! And I'm doing so at one of my favorite live music venues -- Keystone Korner Baltimore! 

It's this Wednesday, July 14. A single show at 7:30 pm! 

Two ways to check out this special…
