Once again I begin with an apology for leaving it so long between messages. In a world of instant messaging, I often wonder who will be reading this, but here goes anyway!
We start on Thursday 22nd March in Bruchsal to embark upon the first of this year’s concerts with my friends and Compadres: Mads, Frank, Gunnar and Zsolt. I have done a few guest shows already this year,, but I’m really looking forward to having ’The Band’ behind me. It’s never the same without them.
We are in for a treat with an excursion to Athens to play a one off concert in April and enjoy some wonderful Greek food. A very busy schedule awaits us in May, our traditional yearly concerts at Madam Felle in Bergen and dates scattered around Europe, which I’m looking forward to. It definitely beats practicing!!! All the dates are up on the website and we’ll keep you all up to date with Facebook posts.
It was a great thrill to work with and spend some time with Bill Evans and Randy Brecker in New York. I even managed to remember to take my ‘Dreams’ album (yes, a Vinyl copy from 1972) for Randy to autograph.
Well, hopefully I can ‘get it together’ to update this page more often this year or look to try Instagram!!!
Here’s to another year older! I must say it feels to me like the world and ourselves are more fragile than ever, so take care out there, enjoy every day and Keep On Rockin’.
