HAPPY 2004!!!!

2003 has been a great year so I'm a little sad to see it go. I recorded and released the "Soul Sessions" CD which I REALLY like and am very proud of. The 2003 "An Evening of Guitars and Saxes" tour with Richard Elliot, Steve cole, Peter White and myself was a great success. It was a lot of fun to get on the road and meet so many of you at the shows. My sons have been shaping more and more into little men. Matthew just turned one ond Chris three. At that age, the passing of one year makes for some BIG changes. That's been a blast to be a part of. Also in October Rod Stewart asked me if I'd play on some TV shows with him to promote his latest CD "The American Songbook 2". I had a great time hanging out with those guys again and making some music.

So 2003 has been great, but I just like the "sound" of 2004 ( I think that I usually tend to lean more towards even numbers anyway). I just enjoy saying it more than the words "two thousand three" and that alone would have me optomistic about the year to come but I also have a lot of plans that I'm excited see unfold.

First I perform on the "Smooth Jazz Cruise" from Jan 18th until the end of the month and I just can't see a downside to that. The Carribean in January ( for a New Yorker that alone is a big deal),I get to play some music along with some of my favorite musicians and take my family with me on what sounds like a great vacation!

Then as soon as I get back I'm going to meet back up with Rod Stewart and the band in Ft Lauderdale. We enjoyed getting back together for those TV shows so much that we decided to continue it a little longer and I'm going to perform with the band Feb, March and April for the U.S. part of their tour. (I'll be listing those dates here soon). Don't worry, I'm not forsaking my solo career to go back to my old job or anything, just taking a few months to hang out with my old friends and play a bit.It should be a blast.

As soon as that finishes, starting in May, they are beginning to book dates for the 2004 version of " An Evening of Guitars and Saxes" of which I'm going to be a part of. Once again I'm so glad that I was asked to participate in this tour because it sounds like such a great line up with Warren Hill, Marc Antione and Euge Groove.

This will be my first time working with Euge but I love the way he plays and he seems like a great guy so I look forward to that experience. Also it will be a lot of fun to get back on the road with my friends Warren and Marc.

So all in all it looks a 2004 is shaping into what could be very busy, but rewarding and fun year.
Happy New Year to everyone!

P.S. I also want to apologize to anyone who may have been inconvenieced when I had to bow out of my upcoming show that was scheduled for the Berks Jazz Festival on March 18th. I really hate cancelling a show. We tried very hard to juggle things and make it happen but it just wasn't in the cards. I rarely do this so please accept my humble apologies.
