CP4 @ Ottawa Jazzfest

Hi Everyone —

Happy to announce that the Craig Pedersen Quartet is playing the Ottawa Jazz Festival on June 28th, at noon, on the OLG stage.  It’s a free show, and we’d love to see you out.

In other news, I’ve been a little silent here.  The time and energy for regular updates comes and goes.  Creatively speaking, I’m currently in “input mode” rather than “output mode”.


Word up.
