twenty six years later




and because i didn't go outside the house at all yesterday - it was a blustery, unexpected dump of snow again - or get on the computer, i'm just posting now about the anniversary of Zoot's death. March 23, 1985 - an awful day, forever.
Here's the back of my CD 'Zootcase', with the songs I wrote about him, and also the CD cover leaning up against the actual zootcase that i used in the show.

A beautiful soul he was, still alive in this world through his music.

last saturday's gig





so we had a lot of fun; BB throws a great party, with interesting guests, great food, a grand piano, and our little quartet providing la musique.
got some pics for you to enjoy...

Norm Amadio, piano (and one shot with Zoe)
Ron Johnston, bass; John Deehan, saxophone

Singing and playing; that's all I want.

see all about it...

Got some videos up on youtube - a couple from 1999, little rough, but hey, it's home-made. and the musicians with me are fantastic.
a few more from 2006; a gig after the tornado struck - all the music and lighting by generator. ditto about the musicians being amazing.
then one more about my recent show 'zootcase', with a couple of short live clips.

go there!! go! go! view them all, and enjoy.

and let's all pray for an end to winter.

merci bon dieu.
