Nice to hear the news out of Baton Rouge.

While you're on the Delfeayo track, we just (almost) finished mixing this song, Big Money, which we'll post (tomorrow) as a fundraiser for some US Senate candidates over in Georgia... You know, the ones who aren't multi-millionaires... I will say no more. Mr Marsalis was kind enough to compose and have the Uptown Jazz Orchestra 6 record these parts...

Peace out, friends.

We're on Twitter and YouTube and stuff, but the ad stops here.
