I’m thinking of you tonight, Walt.
When you sauntered into this world,
foreseeing me thinking of you now,
your leaves, your face, your postures, your secret loves,
and all the things that made you twist through
from who knows where to here and back,
how did you come out wearing that hat!
It was Bob Dylan’s 66th birthday this week. When I discovered BuzzDash a few days ago, I thought of Dylan for my first poll. If I had to pick my favorite songwriter I’d have a hard time picking between Dylan and Lennon. What do you think?
We had a great time playing for the first time at Beerland, here in Austin. As we were setting up, trumpeter Oliver Steck appeared and played the set with us! Twas raucous. Here are four songs recorded straight into my iBook w/the built-in mic:

Unique, original, very intelligent songwriting and singing graces this debut CD released in March 2005. It features backing from a group of veterans from such disparate backgrounds that the naturalness and cohesiveness of the CDâ€™s alterna-lounge and latin-lite arrangements is remarkable.
