At long last…I’ve had this CD sitting around for over 3 years, and it went through numerous changes along the way. I honestly feel this collection of songs represents who I am as a musician better than any others I’ve done. A wide range of music indeed…quite a ride if you let it take you along. It’ll be available from my site at microstick.net or if you’re in the Denver area, I’d be glad to meet up and get one to you. I’ll be having a CD release show at Swallow Hill on January 25th, playing a lot of the music from the CD, hope to see you there. Thnx for all the support over the years…much more to come…all bestest…Hstick
Hey all…once again, here’s some Christmas music from Neela and I. Yup, I’ve sent this before, some of you already have it. We recorded this in 2011; Neela chose the tunes, and we both settled on the arrangements. Hope it touches you…all bestest…Hstick
Really looking forward to this show. I’ve known Paul for many moons now, but this will be our first gig together. Paul’s a virtuoso harmonicat, and he can go a down lot of different avenues. Nic and Ronnie are top blues players; between the 3 of them, they’ll cover a whole lot of territory. I’m honored to be a part of this. Expecting guest artists and jamming as well…hope to see you at the Bucket.

If you want to strike a blow for Microtonality, now’s your chance!
Thanks a zillion.
Then, there’s a nice review of “Hopelessly Microtonal” in the new Exposé mag…they’ve been around a long time, and focus on the more extreme side of the music biz…which I guess means me, ha, woulda never guessed. He described what I did in the book very well. Nice to get some press, artists gotta have it. I’m always grateful when people are interested in what I do; having this and the Now&Xen podcast come out at the same time is good timing.
Okie, all bestest from Englewood…till next time…Hstick
Hey all… I did a nice Skype interview for the Now&Xen program. A couple of my micro colleagues have started this show, this is just the kind of thing we need. Informal, wide ranging, and lotsa fun. Yup, an hour plus, so if you are stuck in the casa from this “bomb cyclone,” you know what to do.
Check out the podcast:
Hey all…Jon Solomon did a great job capturing the essence of our phone conversation, and the ideas we discussed are well presented. This is not an ez topic to write about, but it sounds like the way I actually talk…God help us, ha…hope you can check it out…Hstick
Hey all…a few things coming up…
- Tuesday January 8th, I’m on the KGNU Kabaret show, 7-8 Denver time…we’ll be talking about my new book “Hopelessly Microtonal,” and I’ll be playing several different instruments. Dan Willging, aka Big Daddy, is the emcee…we go way back, and he’s a great host…hope you can tune in…then…
- January 29th I’m at Dazzle with the Bill Hill Quintet, a remarkable band. Bill is a great percussionist/composer, and he keeps us all on our musical toes…early show, so old folks can be tucked in at a decent hour (me included)…
- February 10th, the Quintet is at Rockley’s Music on W. Colfax…another early show, we’ll also be doing a workshop with area students beforehand, which will be a lotta fun…
- And sometime in May (most likely) we’ll be doing our annual benefit for the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra, for which Bill is the musical director. I’ll be posting more updates as they come in…hope to see you folks at some of these…
