1. This issue will be on the short side. As most of you, I have to get my tax stuff together, especially since I will be away at the beginning of April. The spring and summer are going to be full of musical adventures, which will be the focus of future issues. So, I invite you to watch for the following newsletters, and thank you for subscribing.

2. If I recall correctly March marks my second anniversary of playing occasional Sundays at La Mesa Wine Works. The fine folks at Wyatt Oaks Winery and San Pasqual Winery, support musicians of various styles, and have committed to jazz, for the most part, on Sundays from 1:30 to 4:30. Their commitment has been steady regardless of the turn out. Sometimes, like last Sunday when the place was full for drummer Larry Friedman’s birthday, or a couple of weeks earlier, on Super Bowl Sunday, when there were only a couple of folks there. I was just there with pianist Adam Wolff, and drummer Larry Friedman. We warmed the place musically with a selection of standards, and jazz tunes, and I thank those of you who joined us. Even if you were not able to make it, remember that there is good music and fine wine there for your Sunday pleasure. Since it is in the afternoon, children are welcome, too, and they have a delicious locally made soda as well as the wine. La Mesa Wine Works is located at 8167 Center St., in La Mesa.

3. This month’s video is another from the concert my original Dameron Project Quintet gave at the Chelmsford (MA) Center for the Arts to celebrate the publication of Dameronia – the Life and Music of Tadd Dameron. In this one I read selections form my book describing some of Tadd’s time in Paris; a rehearsal for the Paris International Jazz Festival, and a visit from British guitarist Ivor Maraints to Tadd’s hotel room.
