Summer 2016 & Other Things: It's been a great year so far. Back Home came out on March, 4th and it's been doing really well. Thanks a lot for your support. On April the music from Back Home was performed by the Manhattan School of Music's Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Bobby Sanabria. The concert honored the music from DR and, specifically, honoring Tavito, Mario Rivera and Juan Colon. It was great hanging out with Bobby and the orchestra in NY. Later in the month, Jeff Jarvis and USC's (Long Beach) Bob Cole Conservatory of Music Concert Jazz Orchestra performed a concert of my music. Thanks Bobby and Jeff! Over the summer my family and I went back home to the Dominican Republic. It was a family vacation trip but I had the chance to work, once again, with the National Conservatory of Music's Big Band, which is always a blast!!! On this occasion I conducted a few of my pieces at the Santo Domingo Jazz Festival in Casa de Teatro. Great
