My decompression is almost over.   It is hard to believe that a year ago I was preparing to leave Istanbul and return to the USA.  After arriving in the USA at the end of February it was time to decide . . . well . . . what’s next.  But first it was all about decompressing.  After so many years away from the USA it was time to re-familiarize myself with people, customs, attitudes and behaviors.  But the decompression is almost over.  So, while I decompress, as always, I think of where I have been. 
In Russia I always told my friends we were making “Rocking Chair Memories”.  Those are the thoughts and memories you have of oh so long ago while you sit on a front porch somewhere, rocking comfortably with a smile on your face, a smile that tells others you are far away, traveling roads long hidden away.  The longer you retreat the memories become a little clearer but will always have a tinge of the opaque as bits and [...]

may i introduce CHARLES HUMENRY

Yes, it has been a long time since I last reached out to you all.  Since the last time I have returned to the US from that magical city of Istanbul.  Upon arriving back in Denver the decision was made to relocate to the West Coast of Florida.  We’ve gone from the mountains to the sea, and so far all is good.  More about Florida adventures in a subsequent post.  Today I would like to introduce you to a rare young talent . . . . . Charles Humenry.
Every now and then a musician, a thoroughly multi-talented individual crosses my path and just blows me away with their ability, their vision, and their soul and makes me want to share with all of you.  Songwriter, producer, arranger, and composer of film scores, from rock and pop to jazz to classical and modern children’s songs Charles Humenry does it all!!

On the road . . . .

 On the road . . . . 
Hard to believe all the time and all the miles spent and travelled and all the people I have met, lost, or forgotten during this lifetime . . . .
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Paris for a few days . . . .  An incredible person I had known and respected for years but had yet to meet in person picked me up at the airport and took me to his home.  As we were recording in his wonderful home studio he told me he had bought the incredible home in the French countyside outside of Paris 30 years ago, a home where he had raised his son, a home where he intended to spend his last time on Earth . . . .  And what a beautiful home it was.
It made me start to think of where I had been, how many places I had lived, how many places I had visited and spent time . . . .  For those who have never been to America, it is very big. There are 50 states spread over a vast area with Alaska and Hawaii separated by many miles [...]

back in istanbul . . . . .
Well, hello from Istanbul!!  back in Turkey after a few weeks back in my homeland, the good old U S of A . . . . Always a great place to be . . . .  My wife had been planning for four months a surprise visit to coincide (somewhat) with our son and daughter's birthdays without anyone knowing.  Somehow, in her usual way, she pulled it off . . . .  To recap . . . .
i flew from Istanbul to London to Las Vegas where our son lives.  My wife was flying Sara and her boyfriend Chuck to Sin City to celebrate Sara's 21st birthday.  Of course it was perfect since our son David happens to live in Las Vegas and it was about a week from his 27th birthday.  The only problem is I had a day and a half in Vegas alone to "rest and recuperate" from the long flight.  Well, of course, what better way to "rest and recuperate" than at a BlackJack Table :)  Kenny [...]
