Hello Everyone……

Hello Everyone,

I trust that you’re well. There are only a few things that I will mention at the moment (with more to follow). I am on a new CD with the great Benny Golson called “Horizon Ahead” on High Note Records. Recently released CD by Jim Rotundi called “Dark Blue” on Smoke Sessions Records.

Here’s to a big congratulations to all of the recent (and soon to be) graduates. You guys should be proud of yourselves.

Please visit my site regularly as there will be more exciting things that I will be sharing with you all. I do hope to see you all soon.

I pray that you all will have a safe, healthy, peaceful, prosperous and joy filled 2016. Spread and it will come back to you.

Love and Swing,

Do something!

May God Bless and Keep you. Best of all to all of you.

Someone recently told me that “Life is 10% what happens but 90% what you do with what happens”. That was powerful. You have to do something to e somebody. DO SOMETHING! Make something happen, it’s up to you!

My prayer is that everyone will have even better year than you can even imagine. If you can think it, it can be done. It’s ALL possible! “Expectations causes preparation and preparation produces results”.
