Hi Tim. I doubt you would remember me but I used to catch your shows in Montreal when you used to play at a hotel on Park Ave. I even have your first CD..:) I always wondered what you had been up to and now I know. Good to see that you are still playing...and a bunch apparently. Cool stuff. I have a small website featuring Jazz guitar players which you may be interested in checking out at If it is ok, I will add your blog link to the site. Let me know. It is really great reading up on how you are doing and I wish you all the best. Take care.
