First of all, it’s been quite the few months with many small triumphs and several challenges. More below on all of that, but I want to THANK YOU for helping make what we do worthwhile. I have received so much good feedback and by YOU showing up to our performances and giving us the great […]

Our Denver Festival gig was the gig that ‘almost wasn’t’ … as there was big weather – tornadoes and lots of rain. Our bassist and drummer, Larry Kohut and Eric Montzka had to divert into Colorado Springs and rent a car to get there. Then the gig was at a very cool (OUT DOOR!) venue […]

Hello and Happy Spring! What a winter it was. . . I know we are all ready for this beautiful change. I got lucky and was able to escape it for a little while by going to Honolulu and playing at the Academy of Arts. The music was lovely with Jim Howard on flute and […]

The end of the summer seemed like it would be less busy, but it wasn’t – mostly with good things. July 27 – Had a birthday party in NYC 🙂 and many good friends showed up. It was a blast! South Pacific – saw and heard our friend Loretta Ables who plays “Bloody Mary” – […]

After our European tour it was good to get some time off in NYC and Massachusetts while back. It didn’t last long! I was a part of Marian McPartland’s 30th anniversary of Piano Jazz at Dizzy’s. Lots of wonderful jazz luminaries were there to perform and what a treat to hear them all. Marian and […]

The Dakota Bar and Grill in Minneapolis is always like going home to me. My Mom and sister live there, as well as many friends and I spent several good, formative years in the Twin Cities. Steve Nelson, Rod and Larry Kohut joined us along with drummer Phil Hey. Next was Springfield, Missouri at the […]

Last time I wrote we were on our way to Tokyo. The Japanese are wonderful hosts. It was a pleasure to play the Blue Note there. I met with many press people and journalists who were very passionate and knowledgeable about this music. We look forward to going back. Kind fun to have a cocktail […]

I left off in November of last year. After the Thanksgiving holiday -which I spent happily with family in Minneapolis– we headed to Fresno– a wonderful start of their new series with a masterclass for the students at the University there. A very great group of people and we had a ball. Many thanks to […]
