Here are a Great bunch of Jazz Musicians I have known and LOVE!
I have known Joe Porcaro for 35 years: he's a
great gift, teacher and friend to me. He and his wife Aileen
have adopted me as a son early in 2002...i guess I
remind them of there son Jeff in many
I have known Mike Valerio for 4 1/2 years, Emil Richards
since 1967 and Mike Lang since 1968. How's that for some
history! Also, Chuck Domanico (not pictured here) whom i met in
1967 in Silverlake California in 1967, he used to hang out with
us too, along with Roger Kellaway (not pictured) whom I met in
Las Vegas Nevada in 1966 with his wife Jorjana....Tom Scott used
to come together with us too! We used to all get together when I
was a child and enjoy some natural places such as green meadows,
rolling hills, the beach etc. in and along the coast and hills
of Malibu California!
Well now! I met Kofi Baker (Ginger Bakers son) and Bob Robles at the Gig. I have known Robbie about five
years and have been associated with Ohm Band consisting of Chris Poland,
David Eagle and Robbie Pagliari. Their website is: www.chrispoland.com
....they have recently recorded and finished a new album, including are
such tunes like Peanut Butter Buddha, Sister Cheryl and many more enjoyable
tunes they have written played on and arranged! Stay tuned for other great photos
taken with different musicians when we have a camera handy, and have
somebody worthy of pictorial highlighting !
