I was happy to read Bill Hoffman’s nice writeup on the New Orleans Night Owls at the Bix Beiderbecke Jazz Festival in the latest issue of The Syncopated Times:

“The Night Owls were new to me but four of its seven members are old ‘friends’…Drummer and frequent TST contributor Hal Smith leads this band, and its roster guaranteed a good showing. They did not disappoint. The Owls recently released a remotely-recorded CD that I look forward to hearing.”

I still have some of the CDs which Bill mentioned. They are available for $15.00 including domestic postage. PayPal preferred. Contact me for ordering information.

I hope to have more information soon regarding other recording projects which are currently in production.

Best regards,
