|David Valdez, saxophonist and blogger!|
So some of you might be noticing the new look of jazztruth.blogspot.com. All the work was done by saxophonist and blogger David Valdez. Valdez has lived in the Portland area for about a decade; before that, he spent time in the NYC are, although originally he hails from Santa Cruz, California. Valdez is a monster alto and tenor saxophone player, and we have played a handful of gigs here in Portland. I was glad that Valdez decided to help me spruce up my blog; he has been blogging for many years, and knows a lot of the ins and outs of blogging that I don't. (He has one of the more successful blogs in jazz, http://davidvaldez.blogspot.com/http://davidvaldez.blogspot.com/) Many have commented that they like the new look, and I'm hoping that this will help to move me up in the blogging world, with whatever that means.(Ha!)
Posterous link. It's a PDF file of a piano piece I wrote about 15 years ago, and recorded on my first CD for the Fresh Sound New Talent Label("Unresolved",available on Itunes, and also here, featuring Mark Turner, Jon Gordon, Drew Gress, Howard Curtis, and Kurt Rosenwinkle.) The piece is called "Year's End", and if you want to check it out, then by all means, enjoy!
