He Said She Said We Said

 I’ve been performing this poem for more than a decade…but it seems timely…

The gig at the Five Forks branch of the Greenville Public Library, back in April 2019, was sponsored by the library. They reached out to the Greenville Jazz Collective to provide a program of jazz and poetry, so then the GJC reached out to me for the poetry. I would still like to work on an arrangement for this piece, especially including some percussion, and then record it…

Correct link on Facebook for live video recording

On Thursday I posted the wrong link for a live video recording from the Five Forks Library in Simpsonville. So I deleted that post. 🙂 I had fun performing for the first time with Shannon Hoover on upright bass, and Matt Dingledine on guitar.

Here is the correct link: https://www.facebook.com/greenvillejazzcollective/videos/1187964791381097/

For those of you who don’t go on Facebook, there will be a highlights video soon….feedback always welcome and appreciated!
