Hello everyone and greetings from a chilly but sunny New Orleans. Some good things happening recently. I just sold a piece of original music to the second season of the HBO series “The Knick.” I’ve written two new pieces for Harry Shearer and Judith Owens’ annual Christmas show (Dec 23 at Le Petit Theatre). And, while Meschiya Lake is in Ireland, I will be replacing our regular Wednesday gig with four house concerts at my home in the Bayou St John neighborhood. All shows will feature duets with a fine local pianist, beginning with Joe Krown on Dec 9. Please call me (504-400-5428) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details. A festive holiday season to all!
