Zel's Del Mar Show

Thanks to everyone who came out to hear Chase Morrin and me at Zel's in Del Mar, last night! Great to see so many happy faces.

Food was great, vibe was cool and we had a blast. See you next time!

New Show - Jazz @ the Cinema

We've got a wonderful new concert coming on April 7 from 2-3pm at the Encinitas Library (Encinitas, CA). It is Free (donation suggested).

We'll be playing some great songs that have been featured in award winning films from the past 60 years!

It is standing room only each concert, so be sure to come at 1:30 to get a seat. AND please bring a friend!

Hope to see you there!

Listen to Chase Morrin - Pianist

HI all...thought you might like to hear a wonderful pianist / composer. His name is Chase Morrin. 18 years old his music is well beyond his years. If you like Keith Jarrett, Oscar Peterson and Brad Mehldau you'll love Chase. His CD, "En Comun" is available on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. He's hoping for a Grammy too! Please enjoy the CD and support Chase's musical journey.

Shirley Horn - A perfect Valentine's Day voice

Shirley Horn is just one of those great voices that many people have never heard. Her versions of "Estate" as well as countless other songs are textbooks for how to convey a lyric. I hope that I can come close when expressing myself though music. If I only achieved 10%, that would be pretty darn good.

If you haven't heard, Shirley, do yourself a favor and buy a few albums. You won't regret it.

Brad Mehldau show in Toronto

Just a quick note to say that the Brad Behldau/Ann Sophie von Otter show in Toronto last night was absolutely amazing! Two incredible artists that created so much magic!!!
