Hey all. I was hoping for a visit to my childhood stomping grounds, where we stamp our feet before coming in the house. It’s not going to happen. I dearly miss family, friends, and friends-to-be I know to be lurking and working in the stony Catskills.
However, I will meet you all half-way, in Eastern Tennessee. In addition to some Ongoing-Handy-Man-Carpentry sort of endeavors, Lisa and I will be recording at least one if not two new albums: a brand-new Markley&Balmer album, and a Lisa-Is-Jazz-Goddess minimal album of standards and songs which must become such, if there’s any justice.
I have two solo gigs in this gorgeous territory as well, one a GET OUTTA PARK CD Release Party at Down Home in Johnson City, TN on the 23rd; and a come-on-into-the-studio-and-eat-your-lunch-with-us show at WDVX in Knoxville on the 27th. Check the Events page for details, I’ll see you there!
