Saturday, September 20, 2008 Good morning! I hope this weekend finds you well rested. I got to sleep a little late this morning, which I am very thankful for. The CD is off to Discmakers and will be arriving in 6 boxes the second week of October. I am thrilled. THANK YOU for so much, Scully, the man in charge who has been overseeing the post production progress. This thing would never have come together without you. I also want to say THANKS SO MUCH to Carl Saff and Fred Gillen Jr, two great men who worked on putting all the pieces together. I have recently had the pleasure of working with a couple of talented musicians on some budding side projects that I'll keep you posted on. Collie and I are going to explore the bongos/acoustic thing. We had such a blast at Teacher Joe's photo exhibition that we've decided to play some shows together. Bryan Gordon and I have also started writing a new tune together! Hopefully we'll have something to unveil at the CD Release Party on Oct. 18. Finally, Sculls and I hung out with Tadd and Milka last night and did some jammin' while watching the Mets beat the Braves. Tadd and I took turns playing some different progressions and sharing ideas for future collaborations. Plus, the Astoria Casserole that Milka made was out of this world!!! Overall it was an awesome evening! Ok, I need to go buy coffee and sugar. Talk to you soon. Jules We have recently confirmed that my CD release party for "Old Flames & New Names" will be held on Sat. October 18, 2008, in Mt. Kisco, NY, at The Marsh Sanctuary. This is a very special day and I hope you can join me to celebrate! In addition to my set, the afternoon will be filled with music played by my favorite artists including Fred Gillen Jr. and Jay Gisser. I will post more details as they are nailed down.
