(APRIL 19, 2010) -- It's here! My new book, Unexpected Sunlight, is now 
available. It was published by FootHills Publishing, a 25-year-old 
independent poetry press in upstate New York. I picked up the first 
copies this weekend at FootHills' 25th anniversary celebration. If 
you're in the Albany area, you can hear me read from the book on Monday, 
April 26 at 8 p.m. at the Lark Tavern, 453 Madison Ave. in Albany. In 
the meantime, get your copy of Unexpected Sunlight here:

TJS #161: Samuel Blaser. On Pieces Of Old Sky (Clean Feed, 2009), Swiss 
trombonist Samuel Blaser explores space and spectral harmony to great 
effect. In this interview, Blaser discusses the challenges of leaving 
space in music; his Swiss roots and how moving to New York changed his 
life; and several upcoming projects, including his jazz take on the 
music of Monteverdi. SHOW AVAILABLE NOW. LISTEN

TJS #162: Charles Evans. Baritone saxophonist Charles Evans and his 
longtime friend, pianist Neil Shah, recently released Live At Saint 
Stephens (Hotcup, 2009), a duet recording that showcases Evans' amazing 
tone and inventive compositions. In this interview, Evans discusses his 
focus on the bari sax; his relationship with Neil Shah and how it 
impacts their music; and his plans for … bass fishing. SHOW AVAILABLE 
STARTING 4/22/10.


Peace, love and jazz,
