    Yo Doug,

    Your stuff sounds huge on CD. Do you have any plans to take this to the stage with a full-out, face-ripping, complete ensemble? I would love to see this!

    The song "Free", from your first CD, for instance would really be awesome to see performed live with a smokin' horn section and Mark bangin' on the B3.

    Man, I would love to, Double E! No doubt "Are You Free" would be on the set list.
    I hope to assemble a full band sometime in the future (not sure when), but I have to be honest: It's tough financially. Travel and touring expenses - let alone paying all the fine musicians - are hard to finance. I'll get there, though! In the meantime, I'm having a lot of fun arranging my music for my current duo lineup. Makes me see every song in a new light...

    Well, I totally respect your dedication as a solo artist doing your own thing. You are the man!

    Doug,

    The offer still stands if you want to venture down to Lexington for a gig or clinic as you are going through town on tour.

    Chat soon my friend,

    Jai
