As music can make sense when nothing else does, here's my tribute to Paris. Thanks for listening.

This is a short instrumental piece inspired by the city's renowned Jazz scene. If you like it, please give it a "rec." It is, of course, free to download and stream. Thanks again for listening.

1. From one drummer to another...

...that's some good stuff!

I just "fanned" you on ReverbNation.com (Green Sparkle Frog), and follered ya on Twitter.

Listening to Grind Me Down now, very cool.

3. I've written a few lyrics...

...but it's not my main thing.

I started playing back in 1978 in a band called Scott Thomas Lowe & Atascadero (which included as members Dewey Martin, formerly of the Buffalo Springfield, and Jim Fielder, who was a founding member of Blood Sweat & Tears, and who also played with the Springfield and Zappa's Mothers); and in 1979, I co-founded a punk band called Benedict Arnold & The Traitors. My current project is called Green Sparkle Frog.

So now I'm mainly co-engineer/co-producer/art director/drummer/percussionist of GSF.

6. Almost 3AM In Paris - that's beautiful

I've spent most of my life loving and playing jazz and I love your composition. In 1968 while attending The American College In Paris I got to see a lot of artists who visited Paris. I once went to see a be-bop idol of mine, the great Barney Kessel, one of the swinginest guitarists who ever lived. He did a trio thing with bass and drums and played until 4 a.m. Then, my guitarist friends and I engaged him in conversation about playing jazz guitar until sunrise. He was a great guy. My friends and i saw him at the teeny tiny jazz club called Le Cameleon, which apparently is still there, in the Rue St. Andre Des Arts..

And there it is....a great 60s story about jazz in France. I can close my eyes and I am there. Thanks for sharing and thanks for listening.
