More Great Musicians On Their Way to 45 B-Side

Sept. 29, 2005

Well, looks like some more friends are going to be making to Italy for the 45 B-Side including Johnny Gomer a guitarist from Germany who made it to the 1st 45 with Shcroeder and also played my shows in Germany and some members of East Rodeo will be around as well plus players we are not going to mention until the day of the show so you will just have to make it out to Padua and stop by. It should be a real fun time.

Spiral Out is Out!

February 10, 2005

We are happy to announce that DGM / InnerKnot is stocking "Spiral Out". This is the best price you can find on the Japanese Import version of the CD, which sounds great, and perhaps the nicest people to buy from. visit them at www.disciplineglobalmobile.com A special thanks to Bill and Amy for helping put it all together.

We are getting ready to head back to Italy where Ronan Chris Murphy and I will be working on the next CD which will also feature P@ Mastelotto and Tony Levin.

Besides the CD I will be doing some shows with the band East Rodeo, some sit ins with a Zappa tribute band and some guitar duets. I should have the show dates finalized in the next few weeks. Check "tour dates" in a few weeks to see what is up. Things move a little slower over there.

Take care,

Willie

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.

Successful 33 1/3 Hours Super Session and Master Classes

Oct. 19, 2005

Well, we are just resting here in Padova after a very successful 33 1/3 hour non-stop improvisation at Banale Club with many great musicians from around the world. A special thanks to all the folks at Banale and Megabass for helping to make it all possible. Drummer Schroeder and his girl Penny (Sylvia Oelkrug-violin) were real sports about hanging in through all of it good or bad. Mostly good I am happy to report. Schroeder, Penny, myself and members of East Rodeo (Alen and Nenad Sinkauz) had a show the night before at VS artGallery in Padova which was a good warm up for 33 1/3 and a very successful show to help promote improvisational music in Italy. Thanks to Davide, Nicoletta, the Region of Veneto, ACIS and folks like Vittoria Nalin at Cantina Musicale for helping to promote creative music and art.


Speaking of improv music events, Chris Boulet, the mind behind 14 and 33 1/3 is already working on 45, yes 45 hours non-stop. The venue and date are tentative but look for it around the end of April 2005 somewhere near Padova Italy. I am sure I will co-host the event and Schroeder will be on hand.

Also this month we had some successful recording master classes with Producer/mixer Ronan Chris Murphy who you should know from his work with Crim and many others. A very special thanks to Alberto Roveroni for the use of his studio Frabbrica del Suono and his great abilities.


The first week of November we head to Slovakia for the Jazz Fest in Kocise. Check the tour dates page for more information. I am really looking forward to this show. The Czech Reb. gigs are off until Spring 2005 so I will again find myself in the land of the apathetic, some call it America, by mid November unless I can pull a rabbit out of my hat. So if any of you in the states want to do anything besides watch TV just give me a call. There may be some time for a few shows near the end of my stay there and perhaps a seminar with RCM in Arizona.


Well that be it for now folks and don’t get too near the Bush, it can burn you.

Ciao,

Willie
