Every blessing and good luck to you in this the year of the Fire Monkey! Things on my end have been "very busy". I hate to say that but it's true. Saturdays once a month at The Stony Hill Inn in Hackensack with Betty Liste on piano and her trio, still doing singing telegrams and children's entertainment, working on my music (Yay!) I should soon have some on my originals up on the "fun store" page and..... went on the JAZZ CRUISE again this year and have some videos I will be sharing and.... well, enough about me... Hope the world is treating you well. Spring is just around the corner... I'm anticipating with great relief... we just had below zero temps here in the New York area... HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! 2.14.16
Almost December and the Holidays are here... Wishing everyone a safe and blessed holiday season. I have to tell you about a sweet new place to go and hear some great jazz in NYC, It's a club called Rue B, on Avenue B in the East Village. I have been going on Sundays for the 8:30 set, which lasts about an hour and then it's a jam session. This past sunday, the owner of the club, Michael Camacho, did the 8:30 set. He sounds great! A mix of Mark Murphy, r and b crooner vocals, Sammy Davis and Sinatra, but cool! Scatting like crazy and very nice arrangements. Did "If I Only Had A Brain" ballad style... nice!! The evening is run by Jocelyn Medina and she herself is a lovely singer. Andrea wolper was ther for the jam session as was Gitesha , who did a beautiful version of "You And The Night And The Music".... It was a stellar night of music. Also sitting in was Dan Block on tenor saxophone and a great trombonist (whose name I did not catch unfortunately).... anyway.... go on Sunday night!
Next Sunday, the fabulous Michelle Walker will be there!

What's New? How Is The World Treating You.......
Fall is here, the garden is done bearing fruit, the tomatoes are almosr all gone and frost will appear soon.... My summer was very intense and I didn't even get to go swimming once in the ocean.
