Hey all,

I have had the concept for a jazz television show for a number of

years. After talking about it for so long, it is finally starting to

take some form. I have been producing “Hangin' with the Jazzcats” for

the last few days and I am having a ball back in the studio expressing my creativity! It is really starting to look

pretty nice.


I wanted to share with you a few photos and in the near future, I will share some clips of what will

hopefully be the future for television and jazz music.I will keep you

posted! No pun intended

I had the absolute best time hanging out with Chet Hanley and

talking about the music that we love so well on television. I certainly

hope that you had a chance to see this show. My man Bobby Hutcherson

called in as well as a number of great and loyal jazz fans and friends.

There is nothing like it! Jazz music is my life and I will do

whatever I can to make sure that it continues to be a viable source of

musical love for us all to share.

Chet and I worked so well together. The vibe was on and we had the

best time not to mention that the music was outstanding! I have been

invited back to the show next semester and it should be just as


Thanks to Chet Hanley and the wonderful work that he is doing for the jazz lovers of the world!
