The Generosity Water Project

The Generosity Water Project is born of two Los Angeles musicians, bassist Dan Lutz and keyboardist and good friend Jeff Babko, who organized some of their esteemed and generous friends and colleagues to create a single musical document. My contribution was the Peter Gabriel song "The Washing of the Water".
each musician and artist donated 100% of their time, with the sole goal of raising money to provide fresh, clean water to the millions in the world that desperately need it. Other artist include Queen Latifah, Kenya Hathaway, Kirk Whallum, Larry Carlton, Jonathan Butler, Steve Lukather, Greg Philinganes, Raul Midon, and many more.

Pick it up on itunes, and you won't be disappointed.

Lyle and April my good friends!

I just finished the last of the 4 westcoast dates with Lyle.  James Gilmer the tour manager, Lyle, and his girlfriend April Kimble are unbelievably sweet to me.  The respect and appreciation they have is beyond belief sometimes.  I am allowed to do these dates and come home, rest up and fly to the east coast for the last 10 dates of the tour.  As you may or may not know I've been on a tour bus for the majority of the year, and the thought of driving across the country again was overwhelming.  I can however come home, take care of my business, get my new recording started and regroup enough to enjoy the process again without remorse or regret. 

Thanks Lyle I will alway be there for you. You're a good man!

July 21, 2010 the first day back home

Just came home from a private karate lesson and had a hefty salad.  The kitty's and I are getting re-aquainted and I am SO loving being quiet and catching up on rest by having the odd nap and visiting my old local haunts. 

I am a guy who doesn't dwell in the saddness at the end of a tour, but I prefer to rejoice in the fact that it was a success for all involved and, even though I was in a sweet embrace with Andrea, i was joking around right to the very end. 

We got to perform for countless friends and tons of celebrities, such as Hugh Laurie from House, character actor Paul Ben-Victor, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Hilary Clinton, John Hall, Nancy Pelosi, and many many more!  We were actually thrilled to see all these folks loosing it for James Taylor and Carole Kings Troubadour reunion.  They were part of musical history, and we could all feel it!

  I am happy to be back and planning to record a  new CD very soon!  I've planned a cool Blues project that should bring a new organic sound to some originals and some cool blues covers. 

But first I need to do a few dates with Lyle Lovett, and I've got a few LA club dates coming in August.

 

See ya soon
