Very kind of you, Ray. Whether I'm entitled or not, I find it unhealthy to keep my opinions to myself sometimes. Glad you appreciated the show. It was fun to do, and I was grateful for the opportunity.
Best to you in all you in all your creative endeavors.
Roy, Thanks for inviting me to the Bailey hang last night. It was good to see and hear Steve live again. You were right, he was very happy to see me after all those years. I also enjoyed hearing you two play.

Hey Roy. Yeah, those were the days during the time I was back and forth with Maceo and Bobby Byrd. I also remember a New Years gig the that J.B. All- Stars did in Switzerland that lasted a total of 9 1/2 hours with a 15 minute intermission between the primary show. Of course, I was a lot crazier then..... hahaha!!! Talk 2 ya' soon. Jerome
It's great to hear from you! I totally forgot about that session you mentioned - perhaps for good reason. It would be fun to catch up and hear some of the music you've been working on. I'm heading to your website now... Rex
So you knew Joanna... I always wondered what happened to her.
We sure had a lot of fun cutting those demos on her. I got to stretch out a little in production and had a blast. The horn section you hear on the demo is actually Chris Leuzinger and Jay Patton unison twinning the riffs. I then had them go back and twin the harmony parts. Also found an oboe player who did head arrangements to use on one of the ballads. Great Fun!
Tell me more about your experiences with Joanna and Ball. Did she have any success? What's she doing now? Fill me in. Maybe we can swap some stories. Those were really interesting times back in the 80s
