    This looks great! Congratulations.
    Looking forward to checking it out when it premiers.

      Thank you Jerry! Yes, it has been a long time coming for sure. I remember that you were listening the first time my voice ever hit the airwaves, you probably still have that tape of the green kid with jazz aspirations! I thank you for all of your support and being part of my journey. We shall see each other soon!

    My name is Dr. Chris Edginton. I’m a Chiropractor in Chicago and I was given your website by your Dad – who is a patient of mine!

    I saw your Dad recently and he mentioned your work and I quickly told him that I’m a jazz fan who is ‘stuck’ in the jazz of the 50’s and 60’s. He told me of your website and once home, he emailed me the link.

    I just wanted to write to tell you that I’ve been enjoying the site, especially your video interviews. Most notably your site has been opening up my jazz vocabulary to the artists of today.

    Keep up the good work,

    Dr. Chris Edginton
