Many friends have encouraged me to make a calendar or a coffee table book. But I had hesitated to go ahead and print my photos to sell because I didn’t see myself as a photographer. 2020 has been tough on us economically and my work has decreased like many others. So I decided to take a chance and printed 2021 calendar. If you are interested, please check “2021 Calendar” page!

FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE
I think I shared this video with you before but I just LOVE this performance by this amazing trio : Roger Wilder on piano, Bob Bowman on bass, and Todd Strait on drums play “Shiny Stockings” at Green Lady in Kansas City, MO.
Some of you might have seen trumpeter Hermon Mehari‘s performance in Montana when he visited in 2017. Bob met Hermon first time when he was a highs school student. He sat in with a group of heavy hitters and he impressed them with not only his musicianship but his maturity and grace. He recently released a new album called “A Change For The Dreamlike” which you can purchase at https://www.mirr.fr/label. Here is a single from the album “A Conversation With My Uncle/Eritrea” on YouTube!
BigSkyJazz.net and news letter Jazz this week are non-profit. I am doing this to be a little help for jazz community around Bozeman while I work as a website/graphic designer.
