Some photos of recent (or memorable) events that people have been kind enough to send along.

The Penguin.

I  was one of the jazz "ringers" (along with Paul Anastasio) for "Lullaby Moon" at Gasworks Park last summer.

Recording for Dina Blade's "My Romance" CD-I think she took this picture through the studio glass-I didn't even notice-of course, I was so intent on not messing up you could have driven a truck through the studio and I wouldn't have even opened my eyes.







The Du Cavineaux Zebra Kings in action at ACT, for the Moisture Festival Late-Night Burlesque Show. We play Jazz/R&B or is it R&B/Jazz?) during the breaks, and everything from Offenbach to bump-and-grind for the performers. On tenor you see the soul-melting Damien Aitken; there's some bozo on trumpet, and the irrepressible and irresponsible Greg Powers on trombone. The guy in the blue suit with the tolerant smile is the leader, John Olufs.

This is taking up most of my time for another week, then it's back to normalcy.









The Michael Owcharuk Sextet at Jazz Alley in Seattle. From left to right: Michael Owcharuk, Beth Fleenor, Nate Omdal, Jakob Breitbach, Mike Hams, and me. What a night.








The Owcharuk Sextet at the Blue Moon. Since the state-wide smoking ban went into effect, it's now possible to actually see the walls. Pretty cool, huh?









"Now Here" at the District Lounge - every Friday for over four years! Clockwise from the drums (Jim Parsons, who sent this shot along): Mice Elf, Michael Owcharuk, Nate Omdal, and Brandon Gibbons. Mike Dodge, who is the leader, is of course off-camera.

Up Against the Wall with The Yellow Hat Band










With Rosalynn DeRoos (off camera) at the Chapel (at the Good Shepherd Center). What a great -sounding room.

With Mikel Rollins and the Don Berman Quartet at Egan's.






 In fear for my life, attacked by an angry swarm of young (and not-so-young) trumpeters. Actually, our very first student recital. Great time,  no injuries.

 With The Paul Rucker Large Ensemble at Consolidated Works. I think this is a great shot-it captures my pixilated nature.




 A Great Day in SODO.



 FUP members Richard Robinson, Fraser Havens, me, and Steve Wanaka, performing the music of Al Hood at On the House, on June  20th,     2005.






 I explain it all to everyone. (Thanks to Lesli Dalaba for preserving this moment).
