Introducing another unnecessary blog...

Hello to the six or seven people who have enough time on their hands to read this. Thank you for visiting my blog. (If you arrived here by accident, you may want to refine those terms in whatever search engine you're using just a little bit...) The title of this blog cunningly conceals its subject matter in plain sight. Music is what I do, simply because I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. I compose music and was trained on the clarinet, though I don't play it a whole lot these days. I also play the saxophone, though without the benefit of any training. I just bought the horns and tried to figure stuff out. This approach had its drawbacks, as well as an occasional advantage. For a few years (from 1987-1992) I played in the extraordinary music group The Colorblind James Experience. I played with this band on several albums, EPs, and BBC sessions, as well as three European tours and a whole lot of gigs throughout the Northeast United States.

This blog will provide an outlet for my current musical musings, as well as a place to preserve some of the history of CbJE, and other groups I played in, particularly The Hotheads and The Whitman McIntire Duo. New postings to arrrive real soon!

Welcome to the world of unidirectional musings.

Except for the comments, which make this less-than-unidirectional.

Less than unidirectional? Forget I even posted anything...

Even though I found your site by accident, I don't want to revise my search engines. But, I do want to know...did you, by any chance, work at Gannett in Rochester in 1980? Just wondering. Cheryl

No, I did not work for Gannett in 1980. I did live in Rochester from about '79 to '96. The closest I came to Gannett was writing a few articles for City Newspaper for about a year (around 88-89).
