A great gig, a good night’s sleep and off to Seattle for our little residency at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley. One show tomorrow, two shows the next two days and one show on the 11th of October.

On the way to Seattle we stopped for lunch in Toppenish, Washington at the Los Palomas Comidas Mexicana. Simply delicious food!



Back to Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley. We’ve never done anything quite like this before. It’s going to be intimate, great sounding and we’re planning on going really deep in the time allotted us.

Be there… or be square!

    Thanks Jorma and Jack for putting Bend on your radar. It seems like it was yesterday I was putting Quah into my tape deck and driving to work. You guys have been a part of my musical journey through the years. Thanks for that. Hope to get to the Ranch someday. Although Sandiego sounds pretty enticing in January!!

    Never done anything like this huh? I thought you two had done it all. I wish I could be there.
    Opening your show with Heart Temporary, to me, is a delicious idea. Perfect. One of my faves. Also on my personal fever list is In My Dreams, which going next to Sea Child in this show makes me envious of those lucky folks in attendance.
    By the way Jorma, thank you so much for the great two shows in SF. Seeing you guys confirmed that I really have arrived in California.
    P.S. Jacks solo on San Francisco Bay Blues at The Chapel was off the charts
