So our video WD-41 BB-2 at All About Jazz just moved into the top 25 for the last year. It's only been up since April 12! Not sure how long we can stay in this spot but I'm still very happy about this. A big heartfelt thanks to Miko Zen, Dave Laczko, Scott Amendola and everyone who took the time to view the video.

We are Wanted

June 12, 2004

I can't say it better than this man so I won't try. Please read this and then my addition to it below.

We presume too much for our musical heroes. We listen and then, it seems, we just know they're so good, we assume numerous fans feel the same way, providing at least enough artistic and economic support to sustain careers and keep that creative vision growing vigorously. This hypothesis may appear supported by a somewhat steady flow of recordings and sideman appearances, although they never seem to tour through your town. Presume nothing.

Taken from an interview with Marc Cary by Phil DiPietro in All About Jazz www.allaboutjazz.com

OK, so a lot of you write musicians and tell them you want them to perform in your town. OK, here's the deal; do not copy and exchange our material or download it for free! Go out and buy it! That will help to convince labels and booking agents that we are wanted. Then call your local clubs and booking agents and tell them to book us. Writing to us does not help. It just frustrates us as we are not in charge. We make the music, we don't book it outside of small shows usually in our own towns. We can't for several reasons. So do the above and help out.

Thanks and let's work together.

Meanwhile several shows are being put together in Italy for this summer so stay tuned for that and other dates. They do it right. Thanks to Chris Boulet and Voyage Show Agency for their help.

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.
