Man, GREAT to here from you! I soak up your playing every week on XM radio
and always marvel at how easy and solid and swinging you make it all sound!
I sometimes wonder why Jim even bothers with drums with YOU on the bass!
I'm starting to play a little again after the accident four years ago that
took out most of my teeth and crushed my upper jaw - still kind of
floundering around, as my mind is telling my body what to do, but the ol'
bod just can't do it that way any more! It's coming though, and I hope to
be fully functional again before too long.
Meanwhile, I'm headed back to Israel for another dig session at the Temple
Mount (and other sites). I do the digital 3D imaging (21st century
Viewmaster) on the digs and ancillary activity. We'll be publishing a book
in 3D hopefully summer time of '08 documenting some truly startling
discoveries we've made. I'm hoping to hook up w/the Jerusalem Jazz Band
(aka Dr. Jazz) while there and maybe - just maybe - land a gig and stay? If
people actually KNEW how beautiful and SAFE Israel is, there'd be a mass
exodus from the U.S.!
Our website http://www.tubagear.com is booming along. I just finished a
book on breathing ("Massive Lungs - The Wind Player's Guide to Exponential
Lung Power) that is being proofed as we speak by some truly merciless
editors. It'll be an ebook that we'll put up on the site in the next couple
In any case, Don, many thanks for your encouraging words and kind remarks.
I don't need to tell you to "keep swinging" 'cuz man, you're holding down
the CATBIRD seat!
Your friend -
