Freedom Jazz Dance Banner 2016 Update

I have been involved in music for over 50 years. Musician, retailer, wholesaler, A&R, audio engineer, recording producer, critic, band manager as well as currently being an audio electronics and computer nerd. I have travelled the world in these capacities and have a wealth of memoirs. I have a substantial music collection and enjoy sharing it with ESR listeners.

As a special service to ESR members, if you want more info on a track email me and I will send you the album’s artwork. Please include your name and membership number.
