Had just a spectacular night at the Balboa Theater in San Diego seeing the Peter White Christmas show with Mindi Abair and Rick Braun

This is the 10th year I have seen this show and it’s always a part of my Christmas Tradition

And it once again reminds me how thankful I am for these people in the Jazz World and how they love what they do and always remember their audience and what the audience means to them.

I don’t think I will ever be able to thank enough Mindi¬†Abair and Peter White for the encouragement they have given to my career. Always a nice word, always glad to see me. Heck even Christmas cards. And then this year being so special for Mindi to choose My Photo¬†for the cover of her latest CD “Mindi Abair & the Boneshakers – Live in Seattle” was just over the top for me and an honest lifelong dream come true. For me, in my life, this was a BIG deal.

So this year, I am thankful for this picture, taken by my shootin buddy, Laurie Rubin. I will always treasure this. Thank you Peter, Mindi and Rick. My Heros and Legends
