I am wayyy behind in thank you updates for the campaign (I'll make up for that later today), but I have good reasons - we are firing on all cylinders getting ready to start the project!

- The distributor has confirmed our inclusion in the 2015 Holiday Release catalog!

- We have an official release date! (more on this later)

- The recording studio is BOOKED!

- Some AMAZING musicians have signed on to be a part of the recording! Here's one I'm super excited about:

Billboard Magazine says "his guitar work is fluent, and his feel for the groove is unerring..." JazzTimes proclaims, "(He is) A melodic improviser with an exquisite tone and an abundance of soul..." The San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "(He) has a natural, inviting sound that instantly transports you back to the heyday of classic jazz guitar..."

Who is "he," you ask?

I am thrilled to announce that "He" is my friend, the amazing jazz guitarist Terrence Brewer​, who played with me during the 2008 run of my "Standard Time" show! Besides lil' ol' me, Terrence has worked with such esteemed artists as Diana Krall, Michael McDonald (Doobie Brothers), Mary Wilson (The Supremes), and Pete Escovedo, among many others.

Take a listen to our duet together on a song called "Danglin'," recorded live at the Metropolitan Room​ in NYC: http://buff.ly/1OLI4jl

Please visit the Indiegogo​ campaign at http://buff.ly/1OLI4zy - today's goal is $770 - that's how close we are to the $6000 level! Can we make it happen today??

While we still have a ways to go to reach the ultimate goal, we’ve hit a major milestone! As of now, we’ve raised 25% of the goal – $5,000 – and I have submitted the paperwork to the record label! We are definitely “In The Holiday Spirit! Thanks to everyone for your support!!

Keep sharing the campaign on all things social media – we’ve got a big amount to raise in the next 13 days! Use those little “share” buttons to tell everyone you know!
