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
