MN State Arts Board Grant
Completed! I received from the MN State Arts Board for online recording and educational projects. There are two main portions to the grant: one was to collaborate online with other jazz artists to create a new CD.12 musicians contributed songs and tracks including: Guitarists Mike James (LaCrosse, WI) & Scott Gerry (Mpls, MN); bassists Larry Dalton (LaCrosse, WI & Eric Graham (Red Wing, MN), Denny McGuire (Rollingstone, MN); pianists Bert Dalton (Santa Fe, NM) & Eric Heukeshoven (Winona, MN); trumpeter Dave Lamoreux (Seattle, WA); and drummers Rich MacDonald (Winona, MN), Miles Johnston (Lake City, MN) and Jeff Strom (Winona, MN). Full backstory here .
The other project involves live-streaming my "What is Jazz" presentation for members of the Winona Friendship Center & recording it for YouTube. Links here.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
Momentous Record Deal
Still have a CD player? I've got a couple exciting things up and running.. one is that I'm partnering with Momentous Records to sell hard copies of the REAL CD's from my catalog. I've also recently spent a lot of time collecting the specific iTunes and Spotify download links to my CD projects. Visit the Store link here for fast downloading.
