What ya know? Your drumming sounds great man! Got back on Wednesday from my 4 week-7 European tour with the Larry Coryell-Joey DeFrancesco-Alphonse Mouzon Trio! I've seen Kenn's work as an actor! I know you are proud of him and your daughter!

Music sounds great man! Hope to talk to you some more. Maybe even get some playing in together. Also, thanks for your posting on my group "our healing power" It is dedicated to discussing the healing power of music and our role as artists in being facilitators for that process.

Thanks for letting me know about The Jazz Network.....
and thanks for checking out "Just Groovin". It was so great to have players like Kirk Whalum, Houston Person and Wycliffe Gordon be a part of it! When you get a chance, please check out some other tracks from my Quartet - straight ahead CD's.
I really enjoyed your interview and videos here....especially your drum solo video...very cool! You live in NYC, right? If you ever pass through near Nashville, please let me know. It would be great to do a gig together!
