    I haven't made much headway on the folio, honestly, because January ended up being a much busier month than I'd intended.
    Our big band gig required me to write 7 big band arrangements from scratch, and that took a bunch of time.

    Here's my latest porch practice session. While it's not "polar-vortex" cold here in Los Angeles, it was below 50 degrees F, so I only lasted three tunes, "Sunday", "As Long As I Live" and "Penthouse Serenade".



    By the way, if you're interested in hearing those arrangements, here's all of them, being played for a dance contest:

    My new solo acoustic archtop CD, "Pick It and Play" is available NOW!

    Hey Jonathan!

    Big fan of your Allan Reuss studies and chord melody playing! Much to learn from your clips. Also, I'm a fellow lindy hopper and balboa enthusiast. Seeing this CalBal vid make me miss the days of traveling to see the California swing dance scene. Saw your orchestra at Bal Rendezvous in San Diego! And I have this vague recollection of you doing an impromptu guitar jam with Steve Garrett between the event classes. Us lucky onlookers were very impressed.

    The porch practice session is missing for me. I just see blank space.

    BTW, who's your vibist?

    Ah, Facebook. I have Facebook completely blocked in my browser, that must be why I'm not seeing anything. I do a lot of things, but Facebook is not one of them. I'll have to check Craig out.

    Jonathan, have you ever considered creating a Patreon page? I know a lot of us would love to support your music, especially if you were to give mini-lessons and thoughts about how you work out your arrangements. I know your time is limited with the amount of musical and career work plus normal life stuff, but maybe you could just charge a fixed amount for when you post as opposed to trying to a fixed amount of things each month.

    PS - I cannot wait until you find the time to release your arrangements from the solo album. They are amazing.
    Completely unhindered by talent.

    Please don't give up on the folio idea. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to purchase a copy.
    I am enjoying "Pick It and Play It" very much.

    Though a real publication complete with that nice artwork would be nice digital downloads of individual songs might be an easier way to go?

    Georgia on My Mind would be my first request

    Hi Jonathan,

    Would you consider putting your solo album on Spotify like you have with the Campus Five albums?

    Cheers!!

    It's already there Mambazo, but consider buying it on Bandcamp, it's helps Jonathan keep his incredible work.

    You're right! How did I not spot that? (no pun intended)

    I'll of course support on bandcamp. It was more for convenience
