I apologize to any followers out there. I have been relatively quiet on the jazz front. The holidays, coupled with some other work items, have reduced my quality music time. I have been listening to some peppy Frank Sinatra to start my day.

I played in a charity hockey tournament Monday evening to benefit Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services. The event was held at the XCel Energy Center -- home of the Minnesota Wild of the NHL. It is a treat to play on the professional ice but I can never get my bearings straight. Needless to say there was not a "Team of 18,000" to cheer us on so the empty seats seemed to eat up the sound of any yells, shots, or saves. My team finished second.

I have moved internal offices and now have a lovely view of Nicollet Mall. Each day I am greeted by the statue of Mary Tyler Moore throwing her hat into the air. To you youngsters, that is the scene from a sit-com venued in Minneapolis from years ago. (No, not the black and white show, that was "Dick Van Dyke"!)
