I am looking forward to my personal debut at the Red Guitar tommorrow night (saturday)

this is a fun band. Anyone who likes some rock mixed in with their jazz music should come out to hear this new group.

I really can't imagine what it would be like to be a highly celebrated jazz artist. I am having trouble keeping it together with my few gigs here and there and a couple short tours this summer. It certainly would be hard to stay in touch with those you love, especially your lover and kids.

I think the slow development on the business tip is working out for me. It is so exciting and beautiful to have my kids running around right now as I listen to Mike Hansen's pre recorded radio show (he is in Newfoundland) type my blog and do a bit of work.

I am a little concerned about how and when I will get my music together for my Ratgate rehearsal tommorrow.

Ratgate is a new project with Kim Ratcliffe also on guitar, Anthony Michelli and Andrew Downing!!! What a band.

We are performing at the Supermarket in Kensington Market on September 13 in my monthly Guitar Wars series.

Hope to see you there....hope to see me there for that matter.


p.s. I am playing my first gig at the Red Guitar this weekend. The Chris Cawthray Trio, Saturday night 9pm

I am listening to Mocky on itunes. It reminds me of the the fun and crazy jam we had in Berlin last week. So nice of Taylor Savvy to set up a jam with his friends for me to be part of. Funny as the last time I had a jam that reminded me even slightly of this was with Savvy, Peaches and Steve Szigeti years ago on Savvy's Bday.

the jam in Berlin was with Kevn Blechdom, Mocky and PTR (that is the shortform for her stagename Planning To Rock) Also there was a sax player that I didn't really get to talk to. (forget his name already) I was intrigued when he mentioned that he was a friend, band member etc. of Braxton's. Just mention the B name and you get my attention.

I have some vinyl compilation that features the avant rock of all these folks. quite enjoying. it. As I left for the airport in Berlin the taxi driver was listening to some Berlin pop music on the radio and it put my whole visit in perspective in an odd way. I think I could partly see where these folks were coming from or what they were reacting to or "against"

Life continues to be so exciting!! My sister just had a new baby boy. No name yet. I am an uncle for the first time. That is pretty exciting. I just went over and met them on their way home from the hospital. Funny to see my boys checking out their new cousin. they were a bit overwhelmed. I am so happy for these guys. What a beautiful little gift!
