Well, had to figure this out at some point. If I wanted to upload an audio file, and not into my standard site player; not on myspace or facebook etc., can I do it here? Let’s find out…. ….a passage of time….. OK – it’s 4 days later. I have poked and peeked; found sensitive […]

Another Startling year in music comes to a close (nearly). A quick overview of 2008… What an amazing year it’s been, fer sure. Started with some of my compositions selected for a dance being performed in Singapore, choreographed by one of our Conservatory faculty, Stephanie Tooman. She chose 3 pieces from my back catalog; I […]
Video post: from our show in Kingston on 9/28/08
The stage at last night’s show, originally uploaded by nailosity. The stage from Benji & Jakes. I suppose someone should actually take a picture of us PLAYING. That would be novel.
A moment, with rain. Cue Music: “Story From A Stranger”, by Pat Metheny. I’m home… it’s raining. My cat is curled up by my side, next to the laptop on my desk. Very different then the day that was supposed to be. But, we all know (or should) – that change is the way. I’m […]
Just a quickie post – here’s a vid clip I came across on YouTube of the Mahavishnu Project – with yours truly on keys – at the Trinumeral Festival out of Ashville NC, on 8/8/08. Crazy scene, but big fun! It’s a short clip, but ties in to the whirlwind life I’ve been living for […]

Whirlwind! Working day and night; tons of gigs, etc. Fried. Can’t stop. Meanwhile….. Posted an old video…. “Wonder Wheel” from 2005. Seeing as how our old friend and drummer Mike “Leroy” Bram has sorta hit the big time with Jason Mraz, I thought I’d post this clip of him playing…with us. Here it is: httpv://youtube.com/watch?v=N5C89mUxw38 […]
So. Here we are, June 2008 – almost July… that sweet sweet summer air. Wearing shorts – every day. And working – always working. And even a bit – though just a little here and there – of relaxing. It’s been 2 years and 3 months since I made the conscious choice to rework, to […]
“Spring is here….” so the song goes. “Why is my heart not filled with gladness?” Well, in fact it is. I know it’s in there somewhere. Trying to stay on the positive sometimes seems more difficult than it feels like it should be. Truth is, with gas prices, a lack of work in the early […]
