Recently, he has done tours and played festivals in Russia, Europe, Canada, and the U.S. as well as gigged and/or recorded with artists including Esperanza Spalding, Charles McPherson, George Garzone, Hal Crook, Jason Palmer, Greg Osby, David Gilmore, Julian Lage, the Kendrick Oliver New Life Jazz Orchestra, John Lockwood, Lawrence Fields, and many more.
