Happy Post Thanksgiving!
I hope you had a really nice Thanksgiving. I stayed in Malibu but had family visiting here. We took a long beach walk – it was HOT weather wise, and then I cooked for a small group.
Things are quite exciting around here…. my new album Day & Night, comes out Dec 16th and is already selling as a pre-order. A new CD always feels like Christmas and a birthday combined, (just with a lot of extra responsibilities!), so it’s really fun that this one is coming out just before the Holidays. My mother always had some unusual sayings, and I’m going to quote her here about the new CD: “I hope they sell like hotcakes!”. I’m not actually sure what that means, but that’s what I’m going with! You can pre-order here and you can also pre-order on iTunes too and of course you can pre-order on Amazon, too. I want you to know that I appreciate your support! I do think they will make very nice Holiday gifts. The solo piano really sounds nice this time of year.
PLEASE try and come to one of the upcoming performances and be sure and say Hi afterwards to me! I love the new music and am excited to share it with you. Here are the links you need:

Here’s the very first review for the new CD – “the tonic this nation needs…”
And here is the behind-the-scenes video we shot at Capitol Studios on the second day of recording.
This is always my favorite time of year – Holidays, friends, family and the heading into my birthday in early January and the Carnegie show soon after. It’s time to enjoy our “riches” – love, friendships, home made cookies (!) and generosity. Having a new CD at this time just fills me with a lot of good energy and happiness.
Wishing you the best,
