Wonderful concert series with the Hutchins Consort

Had an amazing weekend playing four concerts in three days with the world famous Hutchins Consort. Irvine, two shows in Encinitas and one in Santa Monica. Included standards arranged for THC (Vivaldi’s “Spring,” Ravel’s “Tzigane” featuring Chris Woods), Lili Boulanger’s remarkable “Un matin de Printemps” for flute and orchestra as well as four original Jimmy’s Schmendrix tunes arranged for the Schmendrix and THC. Big fun. Thanks to all of the members of THC led by Joe McNalley, as well as Lynn Willard, and Barry Wood and Mike French, recording engineers. Future audio posts will be up soon.

More for the old folks…

Here’s recent, impromptu video I took of Moonlight Serenade that I played the other day at Vi. Hope you like it. Please excuse the flubs.


Hey, It’s A Living (kind of…)


Playing an Oktoberfest gig with Joe Dyke and Joe McNalley at the Quad Alehouse for the owner’s birthday party. All three of us graduated from the illustrious (a-hem) Music Department of UCSD. You too can get a Ph.D. in Music from there and do lame gigs for not much money!!!!
