This is why I will love music till my ashes blow away...

....  and will live it, breathe it, and fight for it!

There is way too much earth-shakingly good music out there to catalog, along with dumbed down, banal, repetitive, and tasteless pap of course (even a longer list).

When you find something that reaches way down inside of you and grabs your organs from the inside, then you know firsthand the feeling that has no price tag...

Here is a little example:


Long live warriors of the sweet and sassy note!

This weekend in Vancouver

Hey Everyone,

Fall has hit big time.... Had your Thanksgiving, Halloween and clock rollback regimen?

All week I have been hustling to complete my new cd- mixing, mastering and art were all due today to meet deadlines, and what a scramble!

So I got back home, stuffed my face with my wife's amazing cooking, and headed back out the door...

Tonight I am at The Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam in the Unlisted Lounge, who woulda thunk I could jazz it up hard enough for this place!?

Tomorrow I will be at Ten Ten Tapas, but it is a buyout, so if you were planning to drop by, do it next week!

See ya all then....

Getting lots of adds at Radio!

My friends and colleagues like Cal Harris Jr are also getting some well deserved attention across the board. Today I am mastering the title track from my upcoming cd Open Invitation, and Cal is my guest on that track as well... Go team!!!

This upcoming weekend and Remembrance Day video

This is one of those 'not sure if it is a long weekend' situations..... some people go out of town, some stay home and chill, and some venture forth and experience life. Always choose the latter!

I have been in the studio every day for several weeks, winding up my new cd Open Invitation, and squeezing in gigs as they come along.

Last night I had a real firecracker of a gig with John Nolan and Chris Sigerson at the Fairview Pub... man. we were smokin'!  We hit the bebop books real hard, something I don't get to do as often as I'd like. I am rather partial to the sweet and funky flavor of contemporary jazz, but I do walk the line!

The weather is uncertain these days, but come join me for a warm and inviting Saturday eve at my ongoing haunt Ten Ten Tapas, where we will have some fabulous guests including LJ Mounteney and Gunther Klaus. I am unveiling my new tunes as we go along...

Be there or be square @ 7 pm, and rezzies are recommended. It is always a blast.

Tuesday we all honor the fallen and those who served to protect our freedom. Remembrance Day is a day of somber reflection. You can be a Hawk or a Dove, but you still owe a debt of gratitude to those who put their lives on the line.

I created/edited my first full HD video to one of my songs, from my album Cool Down, called Come Back Home (Song For The Soldiers) and I would like to share it with you now:
