I was picked up at 07:25 for a morning TV show In Riga, Latvia. This little clip was recorded by the promoter rep for their Facebook page.
Today Jon asked me which Diana Ross song I played guitar on in the Nineties. I couldn’t remember, but I looked up her 1995 album – which seemed like the right year and soon found it. The first 18 seconds are my intro, including tremolo and octave playing:
I Never Loved a Man Before by Diana Ross on @AppleMusic.
A couple of photos from our April 4th performance with the New Mexico Philharmonic Orchestra at Popejoy Hall in Albuquerque:
Jon puts the travel upright back together. The bass stores in a golf club case for transport.
Music is a kind of alchemy. It involves the musicians and the listeners + together we make it what it becomes. This is especially true for instrumental music.
This is also true for performances. Maybe even more so. The audience performs alongside the band. Sometimes they don’t realize it, but it is so.
What I love about instrumental music is that, without the words you can find you in it, not just me.
I am getting ready to travel to San Francisco for a few solo performances next week. More information here.
I love playing guitar by myself and San Francisco is one of my favorite cities – so I am pretty excited about next week.

Well, DUNE CDs arrived in Santa Fe last week Thursday. The package looks great and I am very happy with it. Now, we could wait until the official release date, two weeks from now… or we could start selling the album today…
All other download outlets, iTunes, Amazon and so on, should have the album on April 24th. The CD will be in stores in May.
We will have CDs available on tour this month.
