I am honored to have been chosen to be part of The Ravenscroft Jazz Resident Artist Program at ASU this year. Michael Kocour, Director of Jazz Studies, brought me in October. It was a great beginning and I am looking forward to this visit. During this Mentorship, I will be working with the students and faculty, conducting rehearsals and giving Masterclasses.
