Although I have had a half dozen Billboard Top 20's, now only with my current Billboard charting track Charmed Life (feat Bob Baldwin), have I joined Allen's illustrious ranks- thanks Allen W Kepler for Keeping the Drive Alive!
i seem to have made the Smooth Jazz Network's Top 50 at #28! Check out Bob Baldwin's fluent piano chops and the excellent rhythm playing from Lew Laing, Jr.!
My svelte and funky track Charmed Life (feat. Bob Baldwin) is still moving up the charts after 13 weeks, #19 on Billboard, and debuted on MediaBase at #38!
This is the third single off my last album Open Invitation, and I have had pretty good exposure so far, with more to come.
I am lucky to have had a half dozen Top 20's on my own, and several (up to Top 5) as featured artist with others.

I have been thrilled to perform at Frankie's Italian Kitchen several times, under the auspices of Coastal Jazz and Blues and Cory Weeds... thanks!
There is a new date scheduled there for me, Feb 24, 2017, so I hope to see you all come out. My usual A-Team will be on board, including Laurence Mollerup on bass; Joel Fountain on drums, Jason Decouto on piano, and I will be featuring the super sultry Alita Dupray on original and classic tunes. Not to be missed!

Saturday (tonight) is a cozy haven for you and me at 7 pm at Ten Ten Tapas (1010 Beach ave on the seawall), perfect for this type of somber weekend!They have a new, highly experienced Chef, Rodrigo Fereira (see images below), who has created a new menu, which returns Ten Ten to their roots as a tapas place, with 15 new featured tapas. Any group of 6 or more mentioning they heard about this promotion receives a complimentary Welcome Drink for everyone in the party (Ten Ten's signature Dry Prosecco, grapefruit and bitters). Last Saturday Lisa Dunn AND her City Soul Choir came in and sang - what a party with them all- and Alita Dupray also graced the stage. Come on down singers! BTW, FREE PARKING!Hope to see you there, and LET'S MAKE LIVE MUSIC GREAT AGAIN! (It worked for him lol)
ciao 4 niao,
Enjoy this cool tune of mine, and the accompanying video...
It is still on the upward arc and here's hoping it is a long and fruitful journey!
It should be a long arc and hopefully a satisfying one!
Charmed Life jumps from #77 to #49 on the Mediabase charts, and up a notch to #23 on Billboard!
Check out the great piano from Bob Baldwin....
