Hello Jazz Friends!



Upcoming CD!

Donna Deussen, myself and the crew are in the studio now. We are about 90% done with basic tracking. We're coming up with some very exciting sounds! We're on schedule for a release this year.


Last month

The trio had a great jazz session at our debut performance at Mambo's Cuban Caf´┐Ż  in Glendale. Jazz bassist Chris Conner joined us there. This is a wonderful jazz venue. Great Cuban cuisine too! Check them out; Tuesdays and Thursdays are jazz nights.


Squashed Grapes continues to be the hottest jazz venue in Ventura. The whole city is lighting up with jazz. They're calling the Ventura Jazz Renaissance. Many of the listings can be found at: For twitter people @JazzVC Please follow them.

Donna Deussen, myself and the combo had a great performance there last month and are asked back this month as well!


This month - May 2013.


We're back at Bellavino's in Westlake village with a full band. Expect many songs previewing our CD.


Squashed Grapes, Ventura as mentioned above. Please join us.


Once per month, on a Friday, Pho CT Vietnamese Restaurant and Jazz House in Canoga Park sponsors a Jazz Night. We often invite some of the finest jazz talent in LA! We're working on a very special evening this month. Please check my schedule, twitter or facebook page for updates.


Malibu Wines! Join us this month on Mother's Day!


Don't forget. Every Wednesday this month Donna Deussen and I perform at the Red Room in Encino. Often we have special guest performers. This is a great 'hang' in Encino, CA.
