Stationary in Mobile I'm sitting in a cafe in Mobile, Alabama. Got the day off, and am spending hours (as I have each day for the past few weeks) on the details of my upcoming CD release and tour. Booking and handling the logistics of a tour on your own is probably the strongest test to prove whether or not you really are committed to do this thingbe a jazz musician. At the moment it is challenging that commitment. But just for the moment, because I know the payoff will come, as it always does, when I am on the bandstand with my quartet, swinging and sharing this musical space with my band mates and an audience." Ted Nash
