My friend Yvonne Meek has launched MusicWest magazine--a great resource for music on Colorado's Western Slope. She has also put together the first Uncompahgre Muses Festival and I'm delighted to be on the venue. I'm also happy to say that my good friend, superb guitarist and bassist Kevin McCarthy of Durango, Colorado will be joining me for the performance. Over the next year I hope to do more performances with Kevin, and I'm looking forward to this new musical collaboration.
(Kevin's also an incredible artist. Check out his web site: mccarthybronze.com)
Tonight the garden is in bloom and sweet scents drift gently in the evening air.
In the distance one can hear the Uncompahgre roaring with snowmelt from the high mountains.
I'M BACK WORKING WITH THE TELLURIDE JAZZ CELEBRATION AFTER A HIATUS.
FESTIVAL THIS YEAR IS AUGUST 5-6-7TH, 2011
