Charmed Life Moves Up the Billboard Charts to #24....

Well, I am getting some action it seems! It can be a slow arc, but also can be long lasting exposure...

My tune Charmed Life from 'Open Invitation' finally cracked the Billboard charts, debuting at #28, and is now at #24.

A lot of credit goes to co-composer and producer Lew Laing Jr., who helped make this tune a hit, with his hip production skills and in-the-pocket playing. Bob Baldwin delivers a concise yet playful solo...

We are off and running, this will be my seventh Billboard hit, following Rockin' The Ribjoint, Starpixie, Lock It Up, Ready When You Are, Propulsion, and a two top fives as featured artist on Bob Baldwin's Seabreeze and Chameleon 3000....

Check out the reviews from the likes of Randy Brecker and more!

Sometimes things seem to move slowly like molasses, but I remind myself that is how the Pyramids and Grand Canyon came about....

My tune Charmed Life from 'Open Invitation' finally cracked the Billboard charts, debuting at #28.

The UberDude, player, co-composer, and producer Lew Laing Jr helped make this tune a hit, with visionary sonic skills.

We are off and running, this will be my seventh Billboard hit, following Rockin' The Ribjoint, Starpixie, Lock It Up, Ready When You Are, Propulsion, and a two top fives as featured artist on Bob Baldwin's Seabreeze and Chameleon 3000....

Three Days of the Condor

Does this look like a condor to you? No?! Then let's talk turkey and 3 days of great music!

Tonite, Friday, I return to the Pinnacle On The Pier, jazzing it up for a 7 pm show, featuring L J Mounteney. A great lounge and the Night Market is right there, Lonsdale @ Esplanade North Vancouver.

Tomorrow, Saturday I roost at Ten Ten Tapas for a 7 pm show, with guest performers. They are offering a chef designed, multicourse Thanksgiving style dinner special as well. On the seawall at 1010 Beach Ave, Free parking down the lane along the highrise.

Sunday I perform and host the wildly successful Jazz On The Bay  7-9 pm Jam Session at the iconic Sylvia Hotel @ English Bay.
Sit-ins welcome, and the hotel is also offering a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

So save Monday for Canadian Thanksgiving and hanging around home..... come eat turkey and get your jazz on!
