Summer 2009

This has been a pretty busy and interesting summer so far. The band I joined, SNUG, played our first few gigs. I played a duet gig with vocalist Janna Osborne (some recordings are on my website) at a restaurant in Redwood City, and a solo gig at a private party in San Mateo. In addition to going as often as I could to the Old Princeton Landing and the Little Fox jams, I jammed one night at Joe Lococo's jam at Peri's in Fairfax, and another time with Dave Workman's group at the Saloon in San Francisco.

Listening-wise, August saw the releases of Robben Ford's Soul On Ten, the (mostly) live CD taken from those two nights in April that he played at the Independent in San Francisco; Wayne Krantz's Krantz Carlock Lefebvre; and Mike Stern's Big Neighborhood.
