As my favorite season approaches I have enjoyed a most rewarding and busy summer. The Royal Bopsters did their first European tour with promising talks of return and I embark on a full Autumn. Freshly out of the recording studio with the beginnings of the next Royal Bopsters recording, we welcomed the return of both Sheila Jordan and Bob Dorough. My partners in time, Amy London, Pete McGuinnes and Dylan Pramuk are a joy to work with and we're keeping the music fresh and swinging.

If you've missed my most recent gigs in town, I'll be taking it out to Long Island soon to my favorite hang, Grasso's. Love this classy jazz bistro (but it's Italian...). It's been such a joy to see friends and jazz lovers who've come out to show their support for live jazz. I'll continue to keep you posted of further gigs as they come up so I hope you'll celebrate with me somewhere.  I promise to stick to the good stuff, the Great American Songbook, but just wait till you hear what Ted and I did to Laura Nyro's "Wedding Bell Blues."  You'll also get to hear some original lyrics to compositions by Claudio and Rufus (penned along with Jeanne O'Connor). 

You all know my work with my beloved String Of Pearls and you’ll see in my itinerary that we continue to perform near and far.  So as I step out from the usual lineup, I know that I will see many familiar faces, meet new people, and share with you the music that is most dear to my heart. 

Looking forward to seeing you.  Now get out and save some sun for me!
