Please Join him and be a part of this historic event on this special evening at ShapeShifter.
Muthaflower has been Jay ‘s brainchild bringing forth all aspects of his experience as a world class composer, reed player arranger and true visionary. The first recording of Muthaflower featured both ensembles separatelyx. Mutha – His trio with legends Victor Jones and Alex Blake was more of an acoustic hard swinging trio ala Sonny Rollins and his other trio project (Flower) – with Xavier Hill and Henry Jeria was his more electric  conceptual band.
This live performance and recording will feature both ensembles as one to premiere his new works composed for this evening. Two amazing drummers, a bassist and pianist/keyboardist led by Jay on all reeds.
We will also have a special Guest DJ that evening TBA.

We want to thank Chamber Music America for their support.
