Well I’m finally getting off my ass and working on a new site. The blog here is a taste of what it will look like. Thanks for all your patience folks. I swear I’ll get my act together soon.
Last night the E-String Band played the New York Ukulele Festival and we had a great time! The uke scene is really deep and I had a blast. Khabu (the uke man in E-String) and I are going to be giving a workshop about improvisation on Saturday so the uke madness continues!
Hey I was browsing through jazz sites and saw you play in a jazz band. As a fellow jazz enthusiast I thought I would share some jazz news with you. I am currently working with Ben Sidran. Heard of him? He’s a world-renowned jazz musician out of the Madison, WI area and a former National Public Radio talk-show host. He’s recently put together a set of CDs called “Talking Jazz” which contains 60 interviews with fellow jazz musicians like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Betty Carter (plus so many more). The CDs deliver candid interviews and truly inspiring words from the artists. You can hear clips and check out the box set at http://www.talkingjazz.com. Give a listen. I really think you’ll like what you hear- it’s worth the click. Enjoy!
