We are gearing up for the next Super Session non-stop super long jam with Stu Hamm, Jerry Martotta and many more TBA by doing two mini sessions the months before. Check the tour dates page or www.myspace.com/willieoteri for times and dates. www.supersessons.org.

I Don't Think This Area is Quite Ready For That

June 16, 2007

We are getting closer to the next Super Session for October. Some very special guests of note coming to this one. Not sure if we will run it all night like the ones before. I don't think this area is quite ready for that but there will be very long jams and a very nice venue. More soon.

Sketch -ing for a Band Name in the Days of Everyone Has a Band

June 10, 2007

Well, I mentioned the band name Sketch below but seems it's taken. As most names are in the days of everyone has a band. Strange how it never came up in searches including All Music Guide, then all of a sudden they turn up and have like tens of thousands of fans. Odd, but anyway we will be looking for a new name for the jazz,rock jamband thing in PHX. Galactic Tsunami came up but I don't know about that one. Maybe back to Jazz Gunn. That was always a cool name, or Jazz Tsunamie or........................

The First American Super Session and the Formation of Sketch

May 21, 2007

Well, the first American SuperSession is complete, held May 12 and 13 at Modified Arts in Phoenix. See www.supersessions.org for more info on that one. We had a great time and it was quite a hit leading to plans in the works for another one in Phoenix in October. We had a blast!!! I should hold my tongue as to how I feel about Phoenix audiences until I compile a complete blog on the subject.

Got an old Volvo as mentioned below. A 1966 PV544 Sport for those who keep up on these things.

Besides keeping my hands greasy I have also been playing a lot and forming a new band "Sketch" with Chris Michlaek and Skinny Bishop. We have plans to record very soon with drummer Pat Mastelotto. More as it all becomes.........

Back in the States and The Truth About Emissions Tests

Feb. 14, 2007

Back in the states again and getting some things moving in Los Angeles and Phoenix. The Phoenix scene is coming up real fast and we plan on helping out by having a 33 1/3 (33 hours and 20 min) show here in May which should be a blast. More info is up about it at myspace.com/willieoteri.

Since a car in needed in this area of the states I have been looking for something cool and retro. Might pick up a nice old Volvo Amazon this week. If you don't know what they are just do a search at Google. Biggest problem is the bogus Emissions tests here which have nothing to do with cleaning up the air and everything to do with selling new cars. Long story but if you are a vintage car nut like me you know what I am up against. For you enviro freaks, a well tuned vintage engine is just as clean or cleaner than a new car engine. Only thing better is the hybrids for now but they are way too expensive at this point. Might be best to make the oil companies clean up their act. Oooooo, now Homeland Security will be on my ass. Ha! What a joke our country has become.

More soon,

Willie
