Auxerres Jazz Festival

Little is found about this festival in the small town of Auxerres, however, there is music in abundance. There is the scared music in Abbaye de Pontigny from Pentacostal Sunday through September.

Long After Midnight made Top 5 on the CMJ charts

What is it about LAM? Is it the sensuous light voice or the sweet brushing on the drums? The melodic piano or driving bass? Probably all the above is why our album, Long After Midnight not only made the CMJ charts this week, but made the top 5 and on […]

They Call Me Mellow Yellow, what do they call you?

New Album

Almost everything is recorded, there are a few re-do’s that I would like to take care of over here in the USA. But aside from that, I just have to work on the mixing and mastering. Oh yeah, but first Sextant Studio has to send me all the tracks from […]

Well, It goes from St. Louis…Route 66

Route 66, a dream come true to be riding the Mother Road, which I have not been on since…ah, well…I was a kid. Let’s just leave it at that, shall we? We depart the end of July and return to Northern Cal August 10th. Watch us on our journey down […]

Montmartre in winter. I dream of Paris in the snow.

Ah, beautiful Montmartre in winter, this picture is close to where we will be living. Only 12 more days before we depart on our journey, I can’t believe the time has flown by so quickly. Am I prepared to leave in just 12 days? So much to do it sometimes […]
