Dear Friends

Happy 4th of July weekend, and happy summertime. Life is so much better with friends and family and live music. What a joy to see many of you at the Eagle Creek Park concert last week - hope to see and hug many more at the upcoming concerts at the Zoo, Bryan Park, B'town Jazz Fest and so much more, check out the calendar below.

Some videos from the Chick Corea tribute as well as new Talking Jazz episodes are uploaded on my Youtube channel - enjoy and subscribe here for updates.

The Sheroes will be on tour November 4-14 in the East Coast/ Midwest region - at this point we have one last open date on Wednesday, November 10 in the Washington/ Pittsburgh/ WV vicinity - first come, first serve, let me know if you have a concert or clinic option for us. The group will also be in Europe throughout May 2022.

Band Directors, the FJH catalogue features two of my originals for Level 3 band, here is the link with lots of cool stuff for the new school year. And Indiana Elementary School Teachers - the Indiana Jazz Masters in the School videos with lots of lesson plans and teaching ideas are live on the B'town Jazz website, a free resource thanks to the support of the Smithville Charitable Foundation.

We are working on a very exciting new project honoring Chick Corea's legacy produced by Lenny White and featuring a star lineup using interactive video technology. Stay tuned for opportunities to get involved and support - it'll take a village.
