It's obvious that you've been around for a while and played quite a lot. Kind of hard to find the real you inside of this as you're playing many different styles, all very competently though. Although I haven't listened to all, I took in more than a few. None (that I listened to) sounded like they were professionally recorded/produced for release, and some not very thoroughly rehearsed (Black Orpheus), but certainly well played. Sounds like you have paid your dues as a club/stage performer mostly doing covers. I note that you are now in Boulder currently. Want to tell more of your story? High points, low points, aspirations, etc. Could be inspirational for some of the younger/newer players.

Wade you have nailed it. None were really "rehearsed" I did body and soul which was recorded simply testing the keyboard players new home studio..I was standing in his dining room..it was just a one take no practice fluke but it came out pretty..the rock stuff was a live gig, one mic hangin' over the drummer recorded on a pocket CD player..the Jazz Q'tet's are just some impromtu basement jams..some stuff was done in the studio with a rhythm sec that never played together before, but all great players..the session yielded 10 cuts in 4hrs. w/no rehearsal, all first takes warts and all. I wrote the original "Lovin' Lips" as a gag when a guy dared me to write a hokey country tune. That tune was put together in the engineers tiny closet studio and with the help of the the computer for backup rhythm, I brought him the changes and melody he sang my lyrics and added live percussion to the tracks. I didn't have a horn with me but he had a dusty old shooting star alto and some sort of mpc and reed so I just went for it and added the cheeseball horn track..

My story goes back to the late's 50's and I've seen a lot, I've been lucky enough to have played and rubbed elbows with many, many legendary musicians. My history spans the 60's rock scene, countless 70's 80's 90's bands and shows,on the road you name it I probably been there or done it..it would take a book to write it down.. Well somehow I've managed to hang ever since..my last name gig I was on Bari with Wayne Newton's Orch '06'09. I'm currently in Vegas I actually live in Boulder City 10 mi from Hoover Dam .I can make the strip in 30 min.

(oh yeah I'll be at Ichabods fri/sat this week if yer in town)

Mike and Saxplorer thanks for the good vibes..it's probably time for me to start recording again. I feel my playing has grown a lot stronger in the past last 10 yrs. (probably richard elliot's fault).
