  Carl will be cutting a record with Chris Lumsden in 2011. Chris' first release will feature members of my band and Mike Pope on bass. Chris is a former student and an awesome up-and-coming modern jazz musician!
  Carl and members of his band will also be recording with Tyler Bartram in 2011. Tyler is a current student and an excellent up-and-coming modern jazz player... and he is only in the 11th grade!
