The Sept. 11th Creative Opportunity Orchestra concert in memory of Tina Marsh was a beautiful and emotional evening of energetically charged original compositions by John Mills, Jay Rosen, Rock Savage, Bob Rodreguez and of course Tina Marsh. The vocal lines were done by myself, Susanna Sharpe and Hope Morgan. It was an adventure swimming in those unknown waters at times and an honor to be a part of making that music happen.
The following link takes you to a video done by Victor Engel of last weeks Elephant Room gig. I performed with GATO 6 in Austin, and this particular tune had musicians changing rolls. Pianist George Oldziey switched to the accordion, and John Mills put down his sax to play piano. The song is a composition I recently wrote in memory of Tina.
October has us traveling to N.Y.C. for a conference on Music, sound and engineering. I'll be back in Austin mid October to host a concert for long time friend, jazz guitarist Margaret Slovak on Oct. 26th. feel free to email me for more info. on that upcoming event at firstname.lastname@example.org
George Oldziey and myself look forward to the December release of our C.D. "LEAP OF HEART" on Aardvark Records, with Brannen Temple and John Fremgen.
See you all in October!
