Japan Earthquake Relief Concert

With House of Straw again, I played a benefit concert for victims of the Japanese Earthquake & Tsunami. 100% of profits goes to benefit charities helping in the relief effort. Joining for the show were the aston­ish­ing­ly gifted vocalist Amie Penwell (http://​www​.amiepen​well​.net/), award winning sax­o­phon­ist Hitomi Oba (http://​www​.hitomioba​.com/), and violinist Michelle Maruyama (Symphony Silicon Valley),
A recipient of the Thelonious Monk Institute Jazz Composers Award Jack Perla — piano, as well as longtime col­lab­o­ra­tors and musical mind-readers David Arend — bass and Ricky Carter — drums, at ODC Dance Commons, San Francisco, April. 9th. 2011.
