For those (all two of you) who diligently marked your calendars when I announced last week I’d be playing again on February 24, thanks, but scratch that. I’ve moved it to Sunday, March 3, 7 to 9:30 p.m. Otherwise, all the details will be the same. The evening will feature jazz standards and other surprises, with:
I finally got a chance to record some clean demo tracks of several songs. I hope you’ll check them out. Please go to my “Listen” page and then to the first four links under “studio tracks.” Or you can click each of the songs below:
These demos would not have been possible without Scott Giambusso, who not only played gorgeous guitar on each track but also engineered the recordings. Amazing. I’m grateful to him and to his New Door Productions. If you’re considering doing some recording, get in touch with Scott and New Door by clicking here.
These new tracks sure beat the others, which you will notice were rather primitively recorded (wax cylinders practically) during some of my live performances. But you’re welcome to check those out, too, especially if you like a little extra “ambiance” with your music.
I’ll be sitting in (vocals) with the the George Oakley Trio (www.georgeoakley.com) at the jazz brunch at Redwood Restaurant, 7121 Bethesda Lane in Bethesda, Md. (www.redwoodbethesda.com). The trio will play from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. I’ll be singing from about 1ish to 2:30ish p.m. Please come on by if you can.
We had a great time on the evening of November 18 at Fusion Restaurant.Terrific turnout and a lot of fun. Here are a few pics (by Josie Krogh) from that gig. Click one of the photos to view the gallery.
Along with the music, enjoy the innovative and acclaimed Indian cuisine of Fusion Restaurant, 4815 Georgia Ave NW, Washington, D.C.
