Here I am in the final stretch of releasing the book. 
I am very thrilled to finally get this out to the world and now on the next part of the journey with Sheila. 



Both Sheila and I are looking forward to the book finding its way into the hands of not only jazz fans, students and colleagues but people who might be inspired by this story to help with their own lives. We are both anticipating the reviews, interviews and all the fun that will go with bringing this book out to the world.



There are so many people we have to thank, most especially to our publisher for all of their belief in this project, including the book in their Jazz Series and the actual physical manifestation of what has been living in my head for the last 6 or more years. Thank you Rowman and Littlefield, Bennett, Monica and Kellie!
