My new CD and other news

Hi Folks,

Here is my first journal entry on my new website! A lot has happened over the last few months. I am excited about the completion of my brand new cd, "Louis' Blues," a tribute to the legend himself, Louis Jordan. It was quite a learning experience getting to work with people like Danny Caron and the three great players from Stompy Jones (Bowen, David, & Scott). My hat goes off to them for a fine artistic effort.

As for myself, I continue to play gigs with my long-time group The High Rollers (check http://highrollers.iuma.com for a show near you). But I am also focusing on my new group which will be performing all of the material from "Louis' Blues" as well as other nuggets from the vast Jordan discography. The personnel is not set in stone, but let's just say there will be some new faces as well as old familiar ones. It's going to be quite a challenge to capture the magic of Jordan's performances; I'm definitely looking forward to it.

I have been diligently getting the cd out there to the promoters and hope to have some great new gigs lined up real soon. So be sure to check the website periodically for upcoming shows. Also, you will be able to download samples from "Louis' Blues" as well as The High Rollers' cd within the next few days. Hope you enjoy the music and come check us out sometime on the dusty trail!

Best Wishes,
Phil
