I had a terrific time at the Tadasana festival in Santa Monica, April 19 thru 22. I got to perform with C.C. White, Donna DeLory, Steve Ross, and Steve Gold. Here is a cool pic of Steve Gold & The Stoned On Shiva Band. 

It has been another year full of music, thank you to my large musical community and family. The year ends with my 4th lesson just released in the On The Path iPad music series http://onthepath.com, a great NIGHT TRAIN MUSIC CLUB  gig at WitzEnd and many more adventures to come. See you soon in 2012

I finished shooting lesson #4 for the On The Path iPad app. Should be coming out soon. Then I will start editing the lesson I shot with Leland Sklar & Russell Kunkel.

My song "3:35 Coming Through", (which plays when you open this website) just won Best Americana/Roots song at the HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARDS. Very cool, I was totally caught off guard, next time I'll prepare a little something to say!! A BIG part of what makes this song sound so good is the insanely great band on the track: drums, Steve Ferrone / bass, Leland Sklar / keys, Benmont Tench, Peter Adams / percussion, Debra Dobkin / guitars, Robben Ford, Buzzy Feiten /  backing vocals, Gia Ciambotti / Dobro & vocals, me /

Much has happened in the past few weeks. I'm just resurfacing to planet earth. Sept 13, we had a wonderful CD release concert at "Russ & Julie's House Concert" series, we sold out the room and had a great night. (The CD comes out officially October 21) Later in the week I sat in with Michael Chapdelaine at "The Coffee Gallery" and "Trilogy Guitars". Then it was off to Canada for 4 shows with Jennifer Warnes, 2 of which I opened. And capped it off with the 50th anniversary of McCabes show at Royce Hall, where I played with Jennifer Warnes and shared the stage with so many amazing artists, including Jackson Browne, David Lindley, Chrissie Hynde, Richard Thompson, Louden Wainwright and many others.

We shared the headline slot with The Wallflowers at "The Parkland Solstace Festival" in Calgary, Canada. Wallflowers were very cool, nice guys. Jennifer sang beautifully, band rocked. We even got to watch female kickboxers beat the sh*t out of each other. Jeff Pevar (bass, mandolin, lap steel) Chris Caswell (accordian, keys) and moi on guitars.
We had a wonderful night, Friday May 30th, as we kicked off the "On The Path Concert Series", with the lovely Amilia Spicer opening the show, and Vonda Shepard playing a great set of new material. In between I was joined for my set by Jeff Pevar, Peter Adams, Debrah Dobken, Amilia & Little Feat's Paul Barerre. After a few well deserved glasses of wine, the evening ended with a jam session featuring myself, Jeff and Jackson Browne.
On WEDNESDAY, MARCH 26th, I have the real pleasure of being joined by the magnificent guitarist and my great friend JEFF PEVAR. We have played together for over 20 years, and aside from his work with CS&N, Rickee Lee Jones, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker and many others, he is the only musician who has played on every record I have ever made. Jeff is featured prominently on my new IMMERGENT RECORDS CD, which will be released later this spring. We always have a great time playing, please join us next Wednesday for a beautiful sunset, excellent food and some great music.

This week I was joined by my friend Grammy winning producer/keyboard player Peter Wolf, drummer Jack Irons (Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chile Peppers) bassist Dion (George Michael, Elton John), percussionist Rich Martinez, and my friend Suzanne Paris on vocals. Look for future gigs with Chris Cornell guitarist Yogi, and my friend and favorite guitarist Jeff Pevar.
We've gotten carried away, many fun hours in the studio for the "Crazy Heart" sessions. A real treat as the legendary bassist Charlie Haden joined us for some tunes, harkening back to his traditional country roots in Missouri. ( a little intimidating as I have to play dobro after Charlie's recent sessions with Jerry Douglas ) In other news, Chad Smith, drummer from the Red Hot Chile Peppers, sat in at The Sunset Restaurant, my weekly gig in Malibu. Fun was had by all.
I had an amazing trip to Thailand where I hung out with my friends Alan & Emma Kozlowski, and various indigenous creatures.

Nathaniel Kunkel is almost done mixing the CD. Nathaniel, who has recently worked with James Taylor, The Police, and Lyle Lovett, is doing a beautiful job. He is finding ways to make the zillion tracks I recorded come to life and speak. Better him than me.

The great David Crosby came in to sing with the great Jennifer Warnes on "You're Still Here", a song I wrote with James Raymond for the new CD. We recorded it at Alan Kozlowski's magical studio, "On The Path". A VERY special night!
I've had the great privilege of working at Alan Kozlowski's ON THE PATH STUDIOS for the past few months. We had quite a jam there Friday night to celebrate Alan's wife Emma's birthday. Jeff Bridges sat in with us. The band was awesome. (ex Wings guitarist Laurence Juber, ex Tower Of Power vocalist extraordinare Ellis Haul, Blue Flame bassist Mark Gorman, Tom Petty drummer Steve Ferrone.) That's the Dalai Lama looking over my shoulder!
I spent the past 2 weeks recording and producing a new CD by jazz.R&B singer James Torme (son of legendary crooner Mel Torme) at On The Path studios with Alan Kozlowski. Mixed with Paul Ericksen, the project came out better than hoped. Keep an eye out, should be released this fall.

Just got back from Austin, Texas, where I recorded at "pedernales" Studios, owned by the great Willie Nelson. Great place. Producing a record for "The Outpost Band". Hung out with Stephan Barber and Eric Johnson...Austin is overflowing with amazing musicians.
Lots going on these days. The Jennifer Warnes/Leonard Cohen CD "20th Anniversary of Famous Blue Raincoat" is going very well. We spent the day at Leonard's studio shooting footage for the DVD. Very cool! The song I wrote with Joel Derouin "Cards On The Table" has been picked by MTV/VH1 as the theme song for their new show "VH1 celebrity rock poker tournament". It features "Mona Liza" on violins and vocals. I'll be gigging again soon...keep an eye out.
Back in LA, the gig at The Cutting Room was a blast, the "Lost Outpost" band gig in Las Vegas went well, interesting town! Saw some great friends in New York, good to be in my home town, but glad to be back in the studio. More news soon.
On Sept 3rd, 2006, I will have a birthday. I will be xx!@!!0.... let me try that again I will be $$#!X*?0 years old. Gee, some of the number keys seem to be sticking on my computer. Anyway, not knowing exactly what to do with myself, (Ashram in India? Climb a mountain in Tibet?) I called some great friends who happen to be incredible musicians, and asked them to play a gig with me in my hometown of New York City. I know...not very original, but it seems to make the most sense. I've been living in Los Angeles for a couple of years, where I have a great studio with my friend Steve Ferrone, but I was born & raised in Manhattan, will always really be a New Yawker. I played my first gig in the city in 19!x&$// ... there go those keys again! So please...
