Jeff and I returned from a wonderful week in Honolulu where we participated in a vital benefit to help with the terrible drug problem, namely crystal methamphetamine, aka "Ice", that is affecting the State of Hawaii. John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, the spearhead of the organization, were the VERY gracious hosts of the evening at the new Honolulu Design Center which included some pretty wonderful artists coming out to offer their talent for the cause. While we were there in Honolulu, my home town, we had the pleasure of meeting and sitting in with some of Honolulu's finest jazz musicians in a few of their beautiful venues. Thank you Ernie Provencher, Jeff Petersen, David Yamasaki, Justin James, Chuck James, Cheryl Bartlett, and S.F.'s Calvin Keaoola...you were all terrific and great fun! I look forward to doing it again. And I'm also looking forward to performing at corporate events there for a wonderful new friend, David.
