My new album "A Thousand Summers" released Feb 1.

Dear friends,

My new album "A Thousand Summers" has been released today. Very excited to be able to share my music with you. It is now available at www.cdbaby.com. Also, for you that prefer mp3s, it can be had at Itunes and Amazon. This album features beautiful songs from the jazz canon arranged by myself and Thomson Kneeland. Nicki Parrott is the messenger of the lyrics and she sings beautifully on the album.

I am also very excited to let you know that we will be doing our album release performance at the famed Blue Note, NYC. On Sunday, Feb 12 at 12:30PM and 2:30PM. A perfect Valentine's Day gig with beautiful songs of love won and lost. You will fall in love all over again ;-) I even scheduled the gig for the brunch performance so you jocks can catch the super bowl in the evening.

Hope to see you and thanks for your support.
