“Always great to work the magic of the Music”

Delving into the deep beautiful waters of the unexpected pleasures of Non-Standard, Non-Traditional, outside the lines, thought provoking, synergies of Sounds and Colors. The musical pallet is vast and since I am blessed with one hour and no rules, we can veer off the flight path and discover new territories together.


Oh, Eddie B was there but, he was  generous enough to offer me the pilot’s seat while he relaxes with a rich glass of Red! He got in a couple in the beginning and then he let me at the controls!


One hour will be quick so don’t slip!!!!!!
