Great CNP hrns recording sessions with Halley Devestern & David Newman this month!
Also hung with Dweezil Zappa and played with Bobby Rydell at the National Kidney Foundation Ball in Philadelphia.
Looking forward to an amazing 2013 Spring/Summer filled with events & music because my agency for live music booking "Thomas Hutchings Music" is already getting calls for work after performing at Astor Center this week! I'm really excited to see what happens next! I'm feeling the universal love like crazy this month!
GREAT NEWS! I helped arrange horns on Linda Chorney's Emotional Jukebox album! 54th Grammy's, here we come!!! You can listen to it here! http://www.reverbnation.com/tunepak/3504227

Pretty cool stuff! The CDs are available on CDbaby.com and Albums or tracks are downloadable on iTunes. I'll keep you posted on how my upcoming global marketing campaign with smoothjazz.com pans out.
It's another hot day in Manhattan. It's been a pretty good week. The ALLERGIC TO GRAVITY CD is almost fully completed and the gigs this week have all been great!
Wednesday with Anomaly at Nightingale Lounge was great! Last Night at Empire Casino was superb and tonight I'm headed to Long Island to play at a party.
On a sad note: A really great guitarist, Hiram Bullock, passed away recently. I only met him one time at a club called Tramps back in 1997 when I was recording a live album with Milo Z called "Live And Bumpin'", but I got to hear him mon so many great records; Especially with David Sanborn on some live recordings that are incredible. He was a great musician and I'll miss his great playing so much.
On a positive note: I have some really cool news! Disc makers really likes my album art work and have licensed my album images. See email from disc makers below:
"Dear Thomas, This email is in regards to your project "Allergic to Gravity." The Design Studio at Disc Makers is excited about the look of your finished project. It presents a very professional package design that we would be proud to show off. We would like your permission to exhibit it in our building or showcase it in some of our printed materials or on our website. As well, we may want to submit it to design competitions.
This would be an opportunity for literally millions of people to see your name and would be an incredible resource for you to spread the news about your project. The best part is...it costs you nothing."
PRETTY COOL RIGHT?!!!!
Well, that's all for now. I'll try to start posting more about what's going on with me musically day to day, so stay tuned.
Thanks for all your support and have a great weekend! Thomas
