Due to the corona crisis all concerts and rehearsals were cancelled, however I finished 3 new videos:"Universe Road", "Another Morning Blues" and "Voodoo Child s.r."(live in Vienna jan2019) Also I wrote a composition for saxophone ensemble and edited a few older videos. Here are three Hendrix songs performed solo (with backing tracks) in Milano / Italy in 2015. "If 6 was 9" , "Valleys of Neptune" and "Voodoo Child (s.r.)" . I also uploaded a video of the jazz standard "Spring is here" just a soft tribute to the beauty of nature at this time of the year.

The Christmas Concert at GLOBE/Hilversum was really impressive ...a lot of positive changes are going on there...I haven't been jammin' with my former "working brothers/teachers" for ages ...I was very proud to have the crowd sing "Silent Night" in various languages at the same time (mine was the Austrian original "Stille Nacht") ! It was wonderful & beautiful - anybody can do that around the world ...
In october we took some time to relax on the beautiful Island of Tenerife / Spain ...
I finished a musicvideo of "Hello Brother" (dedicated to the American Indians) - This song is from my CD "AND PASS IT ON TO JAMES" and a music video of "People People" from my CD "AND SAY HELLO TO JAMES". Both are tributes to Jimi Hendrix.
