~May 2022~

NEWS - For the first time in three years I have a music trip to the Bay Area. I will be down there from June 29 to July 6, playing Friday night at cafe Borrone with Clint Baker, then solo piano at The Sequoias in San Francisco, Sunday, July 3, again at The Sequoias, Monday July 4 with Clint Baker and Tuesday at the Bird and Beckett bookstore in San Francisco with Clint and Riley Baker, Jeff Hamilton and Marc Caparone. Times and details later, but I will be glad to play there again and see old friends.

Jacob Zimmerman had a satisfying job for the Puget Sound Traditional Jazz Society in May. I was there with Jacob, Josh Roberts and Matt Weiner, plus Emily Asher playing some wonderful trombone.

Several good jobs in May and I especially look forward to the Fats Waller night at the Royal Room May 18.

Some of you know my dear dog Pika has died. If you want to see a typical picture that catches her nature, you can find it by looking up 3rd Place Commons Farmers Market and click on the subheading "Dogs at the Market." She was the poster child/dog for dog goodness.
