The Superlatives release The Austin Avenue Recordings

It's official. My band from Atlanta has released our first and only EP. It is now available as an mp3 download on Amazon.

I recorded these songs with the band in early 2005 right before we moved out to California. We recorded in a home that was converted into a studio on Austin Avenue in Marietta, Georgia. Three years later we are finally able to release these recordings.

Helio is now Virgin Mobile USA

Today brings a close to the chapter in our lives of Helio. As of today I'm now officially part of Virgin Mobile USA. I'm very excited about my future and Virgin Mobile's future however the day is bittersweet knowing that something I helped to develop from an idea is changing into something not originally envisioned.

With that said change is good.

LeRoi Moore - RIP

I just found out that LeRoi Moore from the Dave Matthews Band passed away in Los Angeles today. Coincidentally DMB was on tour performing in Los Angeles tonight although LeRoi had sat out this tour due to complications from an ATV accident earlier in the summer. Due to long work schedules this week I had passed at the last minute on tonight's show.

I've seen DMB numerous times (10+) through the years and I always enjoyed what LeRoi brought to the music. My favorite sax part was LeRoi's bari sax on "So Much To Say" off DMB's "Crash" album. It grooves in a way I've never heard a sax groove.

LeRoi will be missed.

In The Big Apple

I'm in NYC for a couple of days for business. I'm pretty sure this is the first time since I've been to NYC since 9/11. The last time I was here was with Jacki in early 2001.

Taking a cab to the hotel I was able to see the Empire State Building and take in some of the skyline. I took a walk this evening grabbed dinner at a small pub and was able to listen to some of the local regulars talk around the bar. The bar was very Cheers like, but the clientele was much older. They definitely got worked up over politics and after the instigator left the bartender said she was going to cut people off if they get out of hand like that again. Great dinner entertainment.

Now I'm back at the hotel watching the Olympics and getting prepared for tomorrow's meetings.
