Hi,  Awesome performance in X~Wray bar, especially on the 28th of october! Where can I get the cd's? I from overseas and would really like to take home a good souvenir. 
Cheers J

Do you have any other CDs for sale by the way? I'm loving the one you left! M.

listened to Belville so far.  It's really, really lovely. Gorgeous.  In fact, I'm working from home for a while today and that song was the first music I heard after waking up.  First rate way to start the day.  (If only I could have poured that trumpet tone into my coffee...)

   Jane Hotel is one of my faves. Has some nice melodic chords and you can picture walking through Central Park on a cool autumn day hand in hand with the one you love. Hopefully that doesn't sound silly but you know, songs can take you places and thats what music is all about.

  Hi John!...  Ah, its awesome! Feels like being in X~Wray bar again! We're really happy to have this cd! ... Hope to see you again! 

JB is also involved with STARGAZER JAZZ... An experimental jazz group based in Canada.
