Dr. Lou Fischer Co-Founder of JEN, and the man who funded the scholarship I received, decided to introduce me to Jamey Aebersold, whom I had already met the day before. Jamey reaches into his pocket and says, “Hey. I got something for ya.” And he gave me this quarter. That’s Duke Ellington’s portrait and his name on the piano.
BIG NEWS! Next Friday, December 12 I’ll be opening for JON BATISTE & his band Stay Human here in Park City! It’s a private event for 300 VIPs. I’m very honored and excited to be chosen to play solo for this. Jon is considered one of the 30 under 30 most influential people in world music. www.Jonbatiste.com

Here I am with Ira Sullivan at a MOCA Friday Night Jazz performance. Ira suggested I make a blues album and title it “Blues from Holm.” I may just do that.
Me with Joey Gilmore, blues guitarist, at WDNA Jazz Radio in Miami. I played with him on a couple of blues tunes.
