Wow! What an amazing festival in West Va May 30! A Taste of Parkersburg.... indeed it was! I played with pianist, John Yurick's quartet: John Sellards on upright bass,Ron Bucklin on drums and legendary Gary Klein on sax. We alternated sets with the most pristine Community Big Band, directed by Felice Jorganson.We did mant jazz favorites including Jobim numbers I sang in Portuguese, as well as a BB King tribute tune and a couple of my songs.I played my '70 Mosrite electric semi-hollowbody and percussion instruments. We look forward to Lady D's Simply Jazz & Blues Fest in Beckley in Aug. Thanks to Lady D for inviting me on her radio show on Groovy 94.1.
