Blogs are a great place to take note of synchronicity or seeming, pshychic powers. Yesterday as I was preparing for our show at the Red Guitar I started thinking that Ed Bickert might show up. This would not be that unusual as he has been a couple times already to hear others and I have got to know him a little bit over the years.

As I thought about it more, I realised what a bad thing that would be as he would really dislike the music that Jazzstory plays.

He didn't show up but oddly enough, his daughter did. Cool eh!!? I have never met her before but she is a friend of an old friend of mine.

Should be pretty crazy at the Red Guitar tonight so make sure you have a reservation if you are coming for the music.

Chances are if you read this blog regularly you know that my group; Jazzstory is at the Red Guitar tonight. We go on at 9pm. We are there tommorrow too but I am sure you will need a reservation if you choose to come and hear our music on Friday instead.

I just wanted to take a quick minute to tell you about my two new Cds. I have John Millard's; A Peoples Fame, featuring beautfiul modern arrangements of Canadian folk songs as well as Tasa's new disc; Urban Turban.

The artwork on these two covers matches the beauty of the music within and the style of design is similar but different (!) and the music is extremely different but both are somehow, so Canadian.

Gotta go prepare for tonights show. Please come and say hi!

Back from La Belle Province...good times, good poutine and reading a good biography on Bill Evans.

Had lots of flashbacks on this trip (is it the fourty thing?) My kids in the backseat reminded me of all our trips to London Ontario to our grandparents. The two hour trip seemed like a guys are pretty good with the 8 hour trip. We listen to lots of music...suprised?...also reminded of sleeping at my Grandparents...I always heard the boogie man in the closet etc.

Pretty weird but, I didn't check my email while I was away...couldn't get a connection. Just scanned 150 emails or so as the CBC tested my Canadian allegiance by putting the Brier curling finals against the Leaf Game on Sportsnet....I chose hockey. (we won with a penalty shot...way to go Chad!)

My little belly button gazing is all feeling pretty weird right now as the news is putting up the statistics of the war on it's three year anniversary. Life can be weird. (blame it on tv?)

time to practise.
