A bummer to bummer car ride ended in a welcoming atomsphere of music satisfaction at the Parkway Grill in Pasadena on Friday, April 18th, 2008. The dinner crowd sat in a waiting section of the resturant patiently for seating. But ust to your right after entering the resturant was a cozy bar area lulling anticpating guests ready for a meal, a drink, a moment to reflect and allow oneself a seranade of Jazz and Swing tunes.
David Arnay - musician that just happens to play piano teased an ardent audience unwinding from the toil of the week's 9 to 5. We were delighted and enchanted all... Read More
After about three minutes, I became very aware that this wasn't going to be a typical "interview." No, without a doubt, I was having a "conversation." True, I was on the phone, but within that short time span, I quickly began to feel like I was just sitting in some highway diner, having breakfast and talking to an old friend.

I am a jaded, cynical bastard. I'll be the first to admit. But my cynicism is not the usual pretentious, disgruntled angst that rages in many others that never got their "Shot in life." No, my cynicism is focused on the realities of what I love...music and all things music related. From bands, to the records, to the labels, to my own attempts at making music I have spent most of my adult life obsessing and pursuing a phantom dream. The dream of creating something people would like. That would move people. Something that would change the world and at the same time loving others that are already... Read More
