It feels like finally real winter has arrived in Montana! We’ve had nice snow and it is going to be cold around West Yellowstone as some area already have been experiencing. Stay warm and don’t fall on an icy road!
My first photo book “雪景 – Sekkei. 空景 – Kukei.” is still on sale!

FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE
Bob and I recently listened to an album called “Cold Blues” (1985) by Michel Petrucciani on piano and Ron McClure on bass. I don’t think we had listened to the album before, at least I didn’t know about the album, and we really like the sounds they created. A wonderful pianist Josh Nelson mentioned the album to Bob and we found on YouTube. Here is a link to “Cold Blues” by Michel Petrucciani and Ron McClure!
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.
