new video: COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS (instead of sheep) with José Manuel Garcia

I was recently in Atlanta to record with my Venezuelan-American musical brother, José Manuel Garcia, at José’s MusicWise Studios. José is one of the best musicians & pianists in the world, virtuosic in classical, jazz, all styles of latin music, and is a world-class composer. We met during our time together at the University of Georgia, and it warms my soul to make music with him again. Irving Berlin’s “Count Your Blessings” originally appeared in the film “White Christmas” in 1955. This was recorded Live on the 1st take.

José is a Steinway Artist and an active performing & recording artist based in Atlanta, Georgia; he can be contacted via his website,, or on Instagram

With Good Friday upon us, we wanted to share this song by our friend Tommy Walker, which recalls Jesus’ words as recorded by John the apostle: “I am the Good Shepherd; I know My sheep, and My sheep know me… My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and no one will snatch them out of My hand.” The Good Shepherd music & lyrics by Tommy Walker, ©2017 WeMobile Music (BMI).

new video: YOU HAVE THAT EFFECT ON ME (brad paisley cover)

I’ve always loved this playful love song. Technically it’s a Country ballad in Western Swing style, but I say we add it to the Great American Songbook! Big thanks to L.A. guitarist Matt Hornbeck for joining me again.

new video: JUST FRIENDS live w/ Matt Hornbeck

Today the world’s best songwriters reside in Nashville, Tennessee. But in the early 1900’s, the most delicious songs were cooked up on Tin Pan Alley in NYC. JUST FRIENDS (1931) is one such gem. Russ Columbo’s original Broadway-Vaudeville style rendition with Nat Shilkret is mostly forgotten, but this great tune is still widely played & sung, a Jazz Standard and beloved member of the unofficial Great American Songbook. Music by John Klenner, Lyrics by Sam M. Lewis.
