The CoolStream

Last year, I had a hand in creating The CoolStream, a 24/7 jazz music station featured on the Live365 streaming platform. As the station’s tagline states, the station presents “the great artists of today, tomorrow and all-time”. For those like me, who appreciate the cross-section of jazz from legendary players to the amazing talents of the current day, the station […]

The Mook

Autumn is without question my favorite season. Enjoying this particular autumn has put me in mind of the song Autumn in New York which is also a favorite.

I especially love this version of the song because it’s Diana Krall. This video for the song that was filmed by Davis McCutcheon and directed by Mark Seliger around New York City during the challenges we faced last fall definitely recaptures much of the physical beauty that I came to appreciate when I lived there. Hope you enjoy it as well. Happy Autumn.

So most of last year was devoted to completing a different somewhat art-related project.¬† It gave me time to gather some ideas for my next painting schedule. One of the pieces I wanted to get to this year is one that I sketched probably 25 years ago. It kept getting bumped down the list over the years, then, just when […]

Paris, Rome and other stops

I had the great pleasure to spend a couple of lovely weeks in Paris and Rome, among others, earlier in July and late June. We saw many great places, experience some wonderful moments and see many amazing sites, including a stop at the Louvre, but what inspired me most were the beautiful people we met throughout travels. I look to […]
