Getting close! Down to the artwork! House concerts coming up….


Hello Friends!

Hope your summer has been sweet!  After a maelstrom of Spring touring and travel, I think I’ve had the most stationary July and August on record.  Still parked in Brooklyn with Rosita expecting our first child.  Looks like we have a real laid back type on our hands.  Meanwhile, I have some gigs coming up and I also wanted to give you an update on my new record, “Fleur De Lis.”

Fundraising for the record has gone very well.  I’m somewhere around 11.5K with two fundraising house concerts – one in NYC and one in Louisville, KY – coming to the rescue!   The record has been mastered and the artwork is close to completion.   I hope to have it out to those of you who have donated by early October and to make it available to the rest of the universe by years end!

If you are interested in attending one of the house concerts, please write me for details at  The few I have done thus far have been a blast.  I make margaritas.  There’s food.  And of course, MUSIC!

Or if you’d like to simply pre-order “Fleur De Lis,” or donate at any other level, click here.  I will send you some new music to download right away, including a sneak-preview of one of the tracks.  Above is a video which explains some of what the record is about.  Enjoy!

Also, Next Saturday, September 8th, Rob Jost will join the band on bass at  The Rockwood Music Hall.  Extended Set.   J. Walter Hawkes will be blowing trombone as well and he and I will play duo the next day, Sunday, in Long Island City.

And last but not least, I will be playing some solo dates down south in October opening for Norah Jones.  And yes we will be swinging through New Orleans!!!!!  See below for details.
