Offering a range of tempos in tunes from the familiar to the obscure, the band pays homage to the legendary composer/pianist’s infectious joy and wit. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event!

Here’s the cover of my forthcoming book. The photo is from the movie Out of the Past, and the actress is Jane Greer, who plays the femme fatale Kathie Moffat. The shadows are those of two men, fighting, one of them soon to be shot.
The book is due out in January.
She’s enjoying this!
