Having worked over the past 20+ years as a sideman for many artists and projects, it can get pretty busy and it's not easy to find time for your own creativity ...

When you play for so many different projects and have to adjust to whatever is required, it is even harder to define and cultivate "your own voice" and even though I managed over the years to always record and write some own ideas, they never made it past the "demo" phase ...

So now, after so many years, I finally feel ready to take it to the next level and hit the studio some time for the rest of this year (2011) to AT LEAST put down some basic tracks and finish the album in 2012.

For all my friends out there who have waited and encouraged me to do so over the years, my sincere THANK YOU for your patience and good vibes !!!

To say it with Charlie Parker .... "NOW'S THE TIME" !


(...stay tuned and I will keep you informed here on my progresses - thanx !)
