The arrival of autumn here on the Costa Rican Carribean coast is more like the onset of summer, with drier weather and wonderful swimming and snorkeling weather. It has also brought the arrival of a very special guest, my good friend and longtime collaborator Rob Moitoza, for a 3 week visit that’s coming to an end later this week. Rob joined me at Costa de Papito last Saturday night and in a house concert performance this week, much to the pleasure of those in attendance. I’m putting finishing touches on the soundtrack project tracks this month and rehearsing for a couple shows in October with visiting bassist extraordinaire Rob Moitoza to introduce the Rumi Songs project here. Many Seattle friends were on hand when Rob joined me in July for the U.S. debut of several of those songs during my little Puget Sound tour with Marc Smason and Joanne Rand. It will be great to have him here for the first outing of the whole collection of this new material. Recording has been underway since early summer, and Seattle drummer Ed Mays laid down some great grooves on a few of the tracks during my Pacific NW visit. I hope to have some previews up on the Music page soon.
