Many of my Doodlin’ Lounge podcasts are also available to any and all public radios stations via

I have a new URL for my Doodlin Records label - so please take note:  It is (remember to put in the hyphen).   My most recent release is call ‘Free For All’ and it features organist Doug Carn and saxophonists, Teodross Avery and Howard Wiley. Dezson Claiborne is the drummer.

The Jazz Organ Fellowship (JOF) traveled to Cleveland, OH on August 17th and presented jazz organ legend, Eddie Baccus, Sr. with the prestigious JOF Award. A proclamation was requested from the mayor’s office and it, too, was read as part of our ceremony. This all took place at the NightTown Jazz club and restaurant located in Cleveland Heights. Eddie’s son, Eddie Baccus, Jr., was not able to attend but saxophonist, Patience Higgins, flew out from New York City and accompanied the Eddie Baccus Quartet. Vocalist, Vanessa Rubin sang a song as well as Shirley Cook - both from the Cleveland area.

I'm continuing to work with the organist-extraordinaire, Chester  ‘CT’ Thompson who will be playing the Kuumbwa Jazz Center on Monday, December 9th with Howard Wiley, Drew Zingg and Darrell Green.

My goal has always been to promote jazz organ music throughout the Bay Area and beyond.

My work with the Jazz Organ Fellowship continues to inspire me.  Remember, "The Jazz Organ Fellowship (JOF) needs your help"
