PERLENE AND PURE PLEASURE AT THE VALLEY JAZZ CLUB

What a wonderful reception we got at today's performance which was recorded live. It was a great turnout and anticipation was in the air. Spirits were lifted, memories were generated and pleasurable enjoyment was indeed the tone of the event. My backup group - Pure Pleasure - consisted of Karen Hernandez on piano, Lou Shoch on bass, Jack LeCompte on drums and Doug MacDonald on guitar. These are truly awesome players and it was both a blessing and an honor to perform familiar favorites with a fresh twist with them. The set ran about 70 minutes and flowed like honey. John Ryan, the club's newsletter editor and web master said a promotional kit would be prepared for me of the finished recording including photos taken at the event. Depending on the quality, we may have generated another CD for sale or something to put on You Tube. I'm looking forward to hearing it. More on this later.
