I had a great time performing in Italy with wowwhywow and a great show on Oct. 12 with Schroeder on drums and Penny (Sylvia Oelkrug) on violin plus Alen and Nenad of East Rodeo on bass and guitar at VS Art Gallery in Padova. We are looking to do more shows together very soon, maybe some in Germany. Also, had a great time in Slovakia performing with Oskar Rosza and the boys in Kosice for the Jazz For Sale Festival. I hope to get back there for more shows this winter and spring. You can find a review of the show at http://mp3.box.sk/newsread.php?newsid=12406&pid=music&subject=music+%3A%3A+interview

Thanks to Jan at Hevhetia for working so hard to put this all together and to
Igor Petruska for the review and interview and Karol Hatala for the photos.

Laying Some New Tracks

April 15, 2004

Been a long time since I posted any news but things like life get in the way sometimes. Just back from Italy last week and resting up here in Tempe near my family and getting ready to do some work with some US bands. More on that later. Italy is a blast and the only place I know where you can pull off something like we did in Padova, a 14 hour non stop improvisation with over 50 musicians from around the globe, thanks to the genius mind of Chris Boulet. Yes, we recorded all 14 hours and have some people weeding through it, so to speak. Chris is an amazing ball of talent who was nice enough to lone me some members of his band wowwhywow for the Italian shows and was the mad brain behind what is now known as "14". Is it true that 33 and 1/3 is next?! Someone help us!

Getting some good reviews of Spiral Out in magazines like www.allaboutjazz.com, JazzTimes and www.movimentiprog.it.

Looks like I will be working with the Hellboys on the next CD sometime in August. Sounds like fun and I will give more details as they come in. The first Hellboys CD is just out with, Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Tony Geballe, Robert Fripp and members of California Guitar Trio all contributing. Not sure who will be on this next one but I am looking forward to laying in some tracks.

We have new "photos" and "tour dates" pages up and we will be posting more to them soon. We have a lot of photos of Italian shows to go through and some from shows in Japan as well. Most taken by my wife Sue Short who does not usually shoot band photos, but did a great job, focusing mostly on the artistic side of her craft with things like water reflections of famous places and buildings. We will post some of those soon too.

Hoping soon to build an Italian site linked to this one.

Well, that is about it for now. Watch your heads.
