This week has been very inspiring for me. There have been some bummers too. Roy Hargrove passed unexpectedly. I didn’t know Roy, but I loved the way he played and was a big fan of his music. On the other hand, I’ve been unusually busy and have been blessed with an abundance of work. Over in London, I was hired to play on two projects, one with one of the singers from the Drifters, (Under the Boardwalk), and another for a composer of children’s music. I feel like I’m learning too and feel like I’m nine again when I do those kind of projects. I also got a smooth jazz song to play on, so I’m definitely going from one thing to another. I also got to take part in another hard rock piece from a gentleman in Syracuse NY, and this morning, something came in from a producer in Italy that reminds me of U2. It has to be done today. If that wasn’t enough, I got an offer to play a show in St Croix in December. I’ll reveal names and tracks on my website as they come to completion. I feel very fortunate about all of this and just wanted to share. Keep on your path. Dreams do come true.
Backstage. I really enjoy coming here. Great people and good for the soul. It's nice to be able to speak through music.
During my daily roadwork, I always stop at the waterways in my neighborhood. Today I saw my first gator....dude is about 9 feet long, and when he saw me he took off. Damndest thing ever for me.
I had to be careful to separate my male and female potatoes in the oven today. It's very offensive. Right Mr Potato Head ? Change my mind.
Siesta Key, Florida sunset 2/27/2021, near my home. It's really gorgeous here. No snow or cold. People gather to check out the sunsets.
Have a championship day!
Thanks to the Church of the Suncoast today for the invite to work with the band today. First class place with first class people. They even allowed me in with no metal detectors!😎 Thanks for having me, it did my soul a lot of good!
The most important payback of all the remote recordings I do is this. When the artist is happy. I'm happy. I love to vibe with them. That makes my day! This guy is straight up dope. @blonde_and_nervous
Who knows what kind of bird this is? I thought it was a Pterodactyl, but what do I know from living in the jungle. Never saw one of these before in any yard I've ever lived in. Smart ass answers welcome!

I have a big turtle in my backyard. I don't know anything about reptiles, or barnyard animals at all, but if you ask me, it feels like the jungle here. This is amazing to me. #turtle
Sometimes, I just like to look at it. Harley Davidson Road King, police model. I can't wait to cruise around Florida in this with authority.#harleydavidson #roadkingpolice #livetoride #1percenter #bike
I loved working on this single from Germany. You are an amazing artist with a stellar cast and I hope you sell a million copies!
Happy New Year from the pool ! I'm not a big New Years Eve guy. In fact, I almost never make it to midnight anyway. But I can go for a swim ! I hope all of you have a safe New Year, and I hope this pandemic thingie is over soon, and everybody can get back to work.
Out and about! We just drove from Pacific to Atlantic, then down to the gulf of Mexico to our new home ! I feel free !#trav #florida #travel
You need a good welcome mat at your new digs. They got the spelling right too! Yippee!😃#sarasota
Moon over the Pacific. Last night living in California. Beautiful. Priceless.
Well, the time has come. We are leaving California and close escrow on our house in Oxnard early this coming week. Headed to Sarasota Florida, where new digs, warm weather, bugs and new adventures await. I've really loved many things about Southern California, and it's been a rollercoaster ride for all 5 of the years, which is just the way I like it. Met some awesome people, and have done some amazing things, and seen a lot of great things, and played/worked with some of the best musicians in the world here. I'm still going to do what I do, just from another "workstation". If you need a good broker, check out @meggiehawthorne. She'll do you right😃
When you are an early riser, and you see this as soon as you wake up with your coffee and you're about to fix the wifi😂😂 #happywifehappylife
Here's some drums and bass for you. I've been experimenting with some effects and I saw a really good drummer in IG and asked if I could play a groove with him. 16 seconds of groove, and taking. my Spector for a ride! Enjoy the solid drum groove of Tim Anderson aka @timsonofander from New Jersey. Enjoy!
These 3 are on tap today. Sukop 5, Fender Jazz 5, and Spector Euro 5...all with #bartolinipups #ghs strings #tsunamicables #bassplayunited #bassplayer . Running some original music and a remote session from Brazil and a short vid. I'm even going to use a pick on one of the songs. I always try to play what the song needs.
