Whoa . . . multiple images on Instagram now!

Website for the new book is now live ( ) and it just got a great little writeup from Midwest Book Review!

What an honor it was to meet and play alongside this fine musician and human being once during our mutual time in Wisconsin. THE Funky Drummer, Clyde Stubblefield . . . may you rest in peace, sir.
