I hope you have been keeping stay safe and comfortable during the past few months and that you continue to be healthy as we all try to deal with the effects of separating from our families, friends and normal everyday life.
As such, I am going to cease all future public performances and remote studio recordings until (at least) 2021. I have really missed playing music with my own quartet as well as with the Silver Tongued Devils and duos with pianist Marc Seales, vocalist Valerie Rosa,and bassist Dan Dean. I regret not being able to perform the annual outdoor bash with Kevin Mason and the Port Townsend All-Stars not to mention the Christmas concerts later this year with flutist Geofrey Cohan. Additionally, I was invited to be a guest artist at the Orcas Island Jazz Festival over Labor Day weekend, but that will have to wait until a safer time for all of us to gather together in large groups. I’m also postponing the annual West Seattle High School Scholarship Fundraiser Concert at Kenyon Hall in October until (hopefully) late spring 2021.
In the interim, I will be teaching an on-line class version of the History of Jazz for the UW beginning autumn quarter and I have several small projects in my home studio that may end up being my next CD release. So, I am staying in shape playing music for Cheryl and the crows and critters outside my basement window while keeping my eye-hand coordination in good working condition.
So, until we get the all-clear signal from the health experts, stay safe and healthy and we will get together as soon as possible for another evening (or afternoon) of music.
