Hot Jazz!

 The studio recordings of jazz combo John Henry are finally available!  John Henry was one of the greatest jazz groups of it's era (2003-2010 or so), easily creating some of the best jazz anywhere in the world!  From Studio 13 recordings, with the help of many, the music is finally available on streaming services and from downloads.   All compositions, with noted exceptions, are by the trumpet player, Dave Chisholm.

Here is the John Henry link, and note the Home button that will take you to the John Henry page on the SLAJO web site.

The Annual Cactus Post

Well, they are in bloom on both 11th and 13th Ave. locations.  Planted years and years ago, they continue to provide me great pleasure for about 2 weeks of the year.

Be careful out there, they may be coming for you!
