I hope you all are healthy and relatively sane. My family and I are making it through OK.  

Episode 4, Dimension 2020, of Tales of the Resistance is dropping tomorrow, August 14. This one is a sci-fi stylee. If you haven't checked the previous episodes out, they are in order. The characters are eventually going to start overlapping. They are writing it as they go. And I am producing the music as they go. Composer, Daniel Savio, has been sending me the underscoring and the songs and themes and I make all the rhythm tracks. The troupe saxman, Dylan Jennings, adds his thing and it gets put in the show with everything else by amazing engineer, Taylor Gonzalez. Last episode we had Adam Theis arrange and play tuba, trombone and trumpet on a sort of Music Man inspired parody commercial. It has been a real life affirmation in very confusing times to be working with all of these great writers, actors and musicians. It's a real troupe. and it is giving me hope. I know this show will give you hope, too. 

The SFMT has produced a live show in the parks of San Francisco every year since 1959. Except this year. This year the show is going onto the airwaves in  bi-weekly installment. I worked on a half dozen shows back in the 90's.  

you can hear all the episodes any time you want at SFMT.ORG.

IN SEPTEMBER OF 2018, I released my last album, dred scott rides alone

It's been a minute since the maestro of maelstrom has recorded, and now he returns to the studio to record ALL of the musical parts to his new album - dred scott rides alone. The compositions are sublime, perhaps dred's most accessible and gentle writing and playing in his storied career. dred scott rides alone stands as a mature and melodic statement of life and love. dred scott rides alone released on September 21.
