With Mokai, at the Bazaar Cafe, San Francisco, 3/17/2004. Playing the blues! You can just make out my slide on the pinky of my left hand. As usual, I'm singing along with what I'm playing. (photo by CC)

With Al Shachman (Nina Simone's guitar player) at the Bazaar Cafe, San Francisco, 12/29/2002. I think Al was soloing on my tune, "The Great Blues Sea". Bruce Langhorn (piano) and Mark Simos (fiddle) were with us on that date, too: The Honky Tonk Communists, David Miller's band. They're just off camera to either side. The joint was packed and groovin'. I'm guessing that most of the audience didn't know they were listening to a jazz legend (Al), a rock legend (Bruce), and a traditional music/song writing legend (Mark). Of course, they did get David's incredible and unique story as the "Honky Tonk Communist". (photo by Starhawk)
