Bruce your photography is awe-inspiring. Hadn't seen these new ones before. I would be honored to have your work attached to my music any time- Thank you!!
as far as your question in re my record-label less status- For a record label...how hard would it be to do your own....>>
seems pretty hard - a big bag of money would help a lot!!
Thank you so much for truly listening and for your beautiful encouraging words.
Bruce, Someone told me that your birthday was some how linked to the recent snowstorm here in New York. If you want people to sit up and notice, a more subtle approach would be greatly appreciated (smile). Happy Birthday and may your futue be filled with sunny days.
Thanks for the add, Bruce!
Hope things are well in Maine.. we may have some mutual friends. I went to school in Boston with pianist Mark Shilansky - does that ring a bell?
cheers, and glad you enjoyed my music!

LIFE I AM THE NEW YEAR
Life I am the new year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am your opportunity to practice
what you have learned about life during the last twelve months.
All that you sought and didn't find is hidden in me,
waiting for you to search it out with more determination.
All the good that you tried for and didn't achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn't dare to do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have --
these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened
by the touch of a strong purpose.
I am your opportunity
to renew your allegiance to Him who said,
"behold, I make all things new."
I am the new year.
AND I SINCERELY HOPE THAT IT FULFILLS YOUR HEART'S DESIRE.

I'm sorry I only just received your message. I haven't logged in for too long. I appreciate your comments very much, and find it makes me glow a bit when someone 'gets' my music. Plus it's always nice to meet a fellow artist.
I lived in Washington for five years and made it up to NYC fairly often. Loved it. Sounds like you have a nice balance going back and forth.
Thanks again for writing and I look forward to staying in touch.
The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Pianist and singer Barbara Carroll was host Marian McPartland's second guest during the first season of Piano Jazz. Thirty years later, Carroll makes a return appearance to reminisce with her friend about their experiences at the Hickory House and the Oak Room. Carroll gives a charming performance of "Very Early" and McPartland improvises a musical portrait of her guest.
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
