Thank you to the amazing Brooklyn-based groups Les Nubians and Erik Deutsch & The Jazz Outlaws for having me join them as a guest performer at their recent shows at Brooklyn Bowl. There are so many talented musicians and artists in this city. It makes me happy to collaborate with some of the absolute best.
If you need a reason to smile today, here's a Facebook video I posted of a morning song I wrote for my 14-month-old son Jim.

COSMIC IRONY iTunes Amazon Spotify
Cosmic Irony is a studio collaboration between producer / bassist Matt Brandau and me. We've been recording together on-and-off at his Upper West Side studio Chateau Brandau since I've been living in the city. These are our funky creations.
The first tune, "Crosstown", is a song we built around a Brandau bassline, with horns from Memphis saxophonist Art Edmaiston (Lucero, Gregg Allman Band, JJ Grey and MOFRO) and trumpeter Dennis Marion (JJ Grey and MOFRO). On "Cosmic Irony" we take a Latin trip down Existential Lane. "All Because of You" is pure pop and "More Than a Friend" is a downtown love song. Enjoy.

Rock at Live Wood is the debut live recording of Greg Humphreys Electric Trio – bassist Matt Brandau, drummer Keith Robinson, and myself.
The Rock at Live Wood LP, from an Electric Trio set at Rockwood Music Hall, is alternately thoughtful and blistering. Mixed by Keith Robinson, it features live arrangements of songs from the Cosmic Irony EP along with some trio versions of tunes from my solo acoustic LPs and HOBEX recordings.
