Big fun with Jimmy’s Schmendrix

Live performance last night at CSU San Marcos with Ed Kornhauser and Joe McNalley. Thanks to Prof. Bob Kostlan for making the concert happen!



As I said, if you remember this, well, you must be pretty old. I guess that I’m pretty old… Not sure if it’s made the comeback trail yet, but it should. Pretty amazing tune. Sorry about that F# flub towards the end; it just shows my humanity and inherent fallibility, as if I needed reminding!

Wonderful Mardi Gras gig yesterday

Way too much fun playing with Tommy Gannon and Kevin Esposito at Casa de Mañana yesterday in La Jolla. Bring on the Purim gig!

Recording Session for UNESCO

Did a recording session the other day for UNESCO. Thanks for the opportunity to do something good, Ruth Webber! This is my “new” 1958 Selmer Mark VI alto.


Great gig at Croce’s Park West

Thanks to my good friend Dr. Neil Choplin and the inimitable Ingrid Croce for the really fun gig last Thursday. Wish every performance was this lovely!
