Thank you to my friend John Tosco.

Last Saturday night I played with Solo Artist Bob Malone, at the Tosco Music Party. Bob is the keyboard player with John Fogarty, former guitarist with Creedence Clearwater Revival. Bob is a wonderful player and quite a showman as well. We played tunes from his new CD release "Ain't What You Know". Good luck Bob on your coming tour.  

I also played with Donna Duncan who always brings the good stuff. The Donna Duncan Band is playing around town…

I sat in last night at the Double Door with the local favorites, Ziad Rabie, Rick Blackwell, Dustin Hofness, Chris Allen and Shana Blake. Always a good time. Get out to see these guys if it's been a while. They sound great, It's a great hang, and you never know who's going to walk in the front door.

Industry Veteran Ricky Schultz says...

"The measure of a musician is their body of work.  It's what seperates the men from the boys.​

Credentials --- the company you keep. It takes time, opportunity, and in the end-real talent do such a thing. You have to put in many thousands of hours--you can't fake the funk.

What makes a body of work? Twenty years with both The Temptations and The Four Tops. Like a rock.

Having worked with a list of artists so deep, (Google it) from so many genres, that suddenly it hits you--TIM GORDON is one of those players--one of the clutch, go to saxophonists in contemporary music.

Dedicated to his art, Tim is a connoisseur-level musician. His dedication is apparent when you hear his sound. And suddenly it hits you again--you've probably heard him before, maybe even seen him along your musical journey.

SOULFUL, hip-smart, and technically brilliant. What else could you ask of a saxophone player?

Encyclopedic range, comfort with any kind of music, and besides all that? He's a real nice guy.


You're in for a real treat here. Tim Gordon has finally made a record of his own.

Enjoy,
Ricky Schultz
