SO HERE WE ARE WITH THE CORONA VIRUS AND NO PLACE TO PLAY!  I'M SEQUESTERED COMFORTABLY AT HOME WITH MY WIFE PRACTICING, WORKING ON SOME NEW CHARTS AND THANKFUL THAT WE ARE HEALTHY AND THAT I CAN ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE!  ALL MY REVISED QUINTET GIGS IN APRIL, MAY AND JUNE WERE CANCELLED OF COURSE, AS WELL AS MY BAND'S FIRST APPEARANCE OUT OF STATE -  AT THE NOW CANCELLED JULY  IOWA CITY JAZZ FESTIVAL. 

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING  WITH THIS JOYOUS  CREW OF GREAT MUSICIANS WHEN LIVE MUSIC  LIVES AGAIN:

OMAR ABDULKARIM - TRUMPET

PETE WHITMAN - SAX
