April 2016

Ah Springtime! Even though it was a mild winter here on the East Coast, the sight of daffodils pushing up and buds about to pop on the flowering trees is a pleasure!

Artistically? I am in a great place: I just finished MIXING a recording with my working band of the last 2 years – a 2-guitar affair featuring KENNY WESSEL and BRUCE ARNOLD complementing each others’ sounds, RATZO HARRIS on Acoustic and Stick Bass, BOB MEYER on Drums, ADAM KOLKER on Bass Clarinet, Soprano and Tenor Sax and TODD ISLER on percussion. The recording is of all my Originals (all with Lyrics this time!) with SPECIAL GUEST JOE LOVANO on a few trax as well! I’m hoping it will be released this Fall….

Look for gigs in JUNE and beyond with this band…

JULY 9th is the Opening Reception for my SOLO ART SHOW (refreshments from 5-7pm) at the Wallkill River Gallery and School of Art in Montgomery, NY – I hope you can SAVE THE DATE on your calendars and come share the joy that I feel in my visual work. Also please check the PAINTINGS page on this website!!!

Wishing everyone a GREAT period of Renewal this Spring – And hope to see you soon at a live event somewhere!
