So the New Mexico Music Awards were last night and my three finalists remained my three finalists. But, as I said before, and Arthur Ashe said far more eloquently, making it to the awards was reward in itself.
The highspot of the evening was seeing Jacy Oliver - producer and guitarist on my next album - win for Best Instrumental against some formidable opposition. The other half of his band CassoVita, drummer Ben Durfee, was with him to accept the award. Two amazing musicians who totally deserve their success. Ben is also on my next effort.
While I'm here...and too lazy to do a separate post...this is my latest favorite comment at Jango Internet Radio:
“ THE VOICE VERY NATURALL, AND MAGIC SLOW ”
So if you want hear more of Mr Magic Slow, beneath a flagless moon is available directly from my NMMA nominated web site davetutin.com as are my previous album Raised In Vain and my various books including my latest collection of poems, The Momentary Truce.
ps. Thanks to the stranger outside the Hard Rock Casino who loaned us the glasses so we could see the eclipse. We could not stay outside long enough to see the full "ring of fire" but what we saw was amazing.
