Be sure to join me on Saturday Jazz Lunch on the second Saturday this month for the regular Jazz Interface installment.
If I have any thought for the new year it is this next song. It is time for the next generation to take the reigns of power and bring some sanity back to our lives in America. The degeneration of the beat has been talking place for some time now and it is now time to finish the deconstruction of the current beat- and rebuild for our children. That is my hope.
