Guitarist and Composer Joe Mailhot has organized a destination event- The Olympia Free Jazz Festival. Artist from the entire northern West Coast, from the Bay Area to Vancouver BC wil converge on Olympia WA at three venues form Thursday July 11th to Monday July 15th. I'll be there Saturday night with the (ahem) West Coast  All-Stars, and Sunday night with The Thought Leaders ("organized" by William Montoleone and Dick Valentine). Interestingly enough, this is a jazz festival with actual jazz. Thanks to Joe for the invitation!

The Gallery





Here is some video from a Sidewinder gig at Mona's-








Gallery 1412 has put together a compilation CD by its members, for the measly price of $5. It includes an unreleased recording by my late mentor Al Hood and me of the Ballad from "M.D.D.-Four 4" from "Wending".






A small part of "PK and What Army" at The Seamonster-what a great gig at a great place-
