A favorite quote... 

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Feature-length film script ready to shop!

Update on new album, website, videos and electronic press kit... 

Hi folks....thanks for checking in! Just want to update you on the wide (and wild!) world of jazz music-making and promotion. I've been busy recording my next album with my co-producer in life, love, and music-my husband, Jeff. We've invited some pretty terrific musicians to join us on this organic, improvisational project where, with the exception of one tune, arrangements were created pretty much on the spot with the band...yes, staying true to the jazz idiom. I wanted to collaborate with and give…

Sonoma's 2010 Teen Jazz Jam Camp culminated with a terrific concert at Sonoma's Plaza amphitheatre on Sunday. 20 teens, ages 11-17, performed a total of 16 tunes learned over the 2 week camp. Pianists, guitarists, bassists, drummers, saxophonists, vocalists and even a tuba/bass trombonist made their way through clinics, jams, sectionals and rehearsals. They were wonderful and we thank Sonoma Valley Jazz Society for sponsoring 2 students and Sonoma Jazz + for their generous sponsorship!
