I've bought my tickets already. Very affordable at $32 for front row in the balcony. Looking forward to it.

hanging on a star

introduction-bryter layter

I for one am eagerly awaiting your CD release, but do you know if your Royce Hall concert was recorded?

it certainly wasn't recorded officially, and i'm unaware of any tapers having been in evidence. the concert hall was a wonderful place, and the hamburg steinway concert grand couldn't have been a more inspiring partner. david sefton at UCLA makes a very nice home for music.
