The new duo album by Shota Ishikawa and Matt Savage is now available.  It’s called It’s My Request: Live at Bar Request, and it was released on New Year’s Day 2016.  Shota is a great bass player friend of mine from Japan, and we also played together on my most recent album, A Live Celebration: Kobe, Japan.  You can order It’s My Request here. 

It’s My Request will be followed up by a new solo piano album in the fall of 2016; I recorded this CD in March.

The film Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story, for which I did the score, is continuing its tour of theaters around the US.

And I am back in the Boston area, doing performances and teaching at Applied Behavioral Learning Services in Newton, MA.  For private lessons, see the “Contact” page.
