and so it goes

June 22, 2017

Getting my mind in the right space for a gig tonight at Kenny Dorham's Backyard in Austin.

It's been a bit of time since I last posted any news. Things are moving along, just returned from another wonderful trip to Italy performing some great soul and R&B with Bobby Soul. www.bobbysoul.com Speaking of Italy, my first meeting about immigrating to Italy will be July 13 at the Italian Council in Houston, one can only guess at how this may go but I will keep you up to date as it moves along.

Did I mention I'm back to playing flute and focusing on flute and tenor sax, still playing guitar but not much unless called for as for my own enjoyment I am really digging flute and sax gigs these days.

Thinking back on my many years, 47 years ago was my first paid gig, a bit of a snag, about 10 years away from music due to unforeseen circumstances but it's been a blast since.

If all goes as planned I will be back in Italy for some gigs and recording in September or October.

Flute

I'm making the shift back to flute as my main instrument. Flute was my first serious instrument in my late teens and I continued to play it in various projects along with bass, guitar and pedal steel. I put it down in the early eighties for several reasons, mainly the cost of a good flute and not much call for it in various projects. I started up again several months ago and after performing several times with flute and a few times exclusively I am ready to make the move. Funk, Soul, R&B, Jazz, Free Jazz and beyond. As always I am open to any projects so if you need some flute.........;)
