New Website

My new recording Rock & Roll Saxophonist CD has a new home, a website all of it's own... This site takes an in-depth look at the recording, the music, people involved etc.

Holland Tour With Candye Cayne

Candye Kane has invited me on her European tour in The Netherlands next month. This is a very special event indeed cause it will directly involve special needs children after the show to join the musicians onstage and let them perform with the band. Candye has done it before and tells me it's like magic for those kids so I'm looking forward to being a part of it. It's called the United By Music tour and our Dutch friends can check out the link and hopefully see you soon! (it's in Dutch)

TV Show

And for my Portuguese friends... RTP (Portuguese international station) and OMNI Television out of Toronto will have a feature on me Sept. 19 and repeated again Oct 3rd www.rtp.pt

Classic Video Clips

Sax On The Web is the cyberspace hangout for many saxophonists and sax fans. They have asked me to do an article on saxophone recording techniques which should be featured by the end of the month. A regular contributor of SOTW, Neil Sharpe, who also was kind enough to write the liner notes for Rock & Roll Saxophonist has been turning me onto some recently discovered footage from the early era of rock & roll. Here's a couple of the links for you to enjoy;
Shotgun by Jr Walker
Long Tall Sally by Little Richard

They say this is the year for video on the internet and the site youtube is a major player where a lot of video types are posting their stuff. If you haven't checked it out yet you might want to do so cause there's something there for everyone.

Song Awards

A song of mine "Swing That Thing" from the new CD, "Rock & Roll Saxophonist" was submitted to Garageband.com a little while back and what they do is have the members who are mostly musicians review and vote for songs.I'm proud to report that "Swing That Thing" made it to #8 on the Blues charts and to #12 in the top 100 on the Jazz charts.
