I’m hoping that you are enjoying this busy spring. I just toured with my trio with Ben Street and Rudy Royston and we had a fun time – meeting new fans as always along the way. We are really excited to see our album HORIZONS #20 on the JazzWeek chart and #8 on the ZMR chart – how nice! We appreciate the support we have found with radio and fans!
