Hey, do you mind a blast from the past?
I remembered for some reason that tomorrow is your birthday so Happy Birthday! I always wondered what happend to you. The last time I had any news you had a gig on a cruise ship - I think they had sails back then! I wasn't sure if I had the right person. The drums were a clue but I knew when I saw the pictures. It was great to "see" you! Write back!

Hello Bruce! My brother Peter Giron just directed me to your website, and I LOVE the pictures of my family! And the captions over the photos made me laugh. I especially love the picture of you and the wine bottle corker. . .he is just the cutest! I am planning a trip to gay Paris in December. Peter and Nicole tell me they will have a huge party so people can finally see I really do exist. After more than 20 years I can no longer think of an excuse why I can't go to France. Hope to see you then!- Terese

I was looking at the photos.
Looks like you were having a good time!

I'll be on the hunt for the CD to add to the 453 other CD's i own.
I'm sure it's one that will hit my top 10 Jazz CD's!

Your album has been in heavy rotation around here. The well thought out song structure paired with your attention to every detail makes for very enjoyable listening. You are a credit to all your influences and mentors.

Hey man, it was great to see you. I'm out of the country 61/ to 7/10 so can't make the Jazz Gallery gig. Give my best to Lezlie. Didn't Peter sound great? Hope we'll stay in touch.

Happy Birthday. So proud of you, you make me sick. I ordered 3 copies of the CD one for me, one for Pop and one for Mom. Always your biggist fans. The tracks take me back to 170 on a Saturday for the music, chicken sandwich and beer ritual. Thanks for the memories.

Great CD. I really love "My Ship". Can't wait for the next CD. Hope to check you guys out "live" sometime soon.
Oh, and great cymbal sound.

Just listening to some of the samples on the site Gina sent me. I'm extremely impressed. Your music brings back vivid memories of some of the great musical sounds I heard in the house on Putnum Ave in Brooklyn and the music my father exposed me to every Saturday (long story) when I lived up in Ossining. Best of luck, you guys rock (smile). Oh yeah, of course I will buy the CD.

Really nice. Reminds me of growing up and listening to Coltrane and Brubeck. I'm so happy for you.
You need more pictures on the site.
