Fate calls us, from Baghdad.
In a small cafe...we dance in the springtime.
Through cascades of time comes the voice of a Saint that beckons us into the tempest.
As my soul begins moving into orbital motion,...
a parasol of love begins to jumpstart my heart.

-Morton Davis


BOB JOHNS (piano/trumpet) Bob’s early piano lessons grew into a desire to improvise like his father who played jazz trumpet in big bands and small groups. When he arrived in San Francisco after a 4-year Navy hitch, Bob found like-minded players who formed the fusion group Nexus, playing in San Francisco and the East Bay through the 80s. He played keyboard and trombone for a time in the African group, Hedzoleh Soundz. Bob plays each Tuesday night with his jazz buddies at the Comstock Saloon in San Francisco's North Beach. He hosts an Open Mic once a month in Petaluma at the United Methodist Church.

STEVE DELLA MAGGIORA (guitar) Steve credits his musical curiosity and general creativity to being raised in a supportive household filled with music. By age seven he was playing accordion duets with his older brother. After high school he spent countless hours learning guitar, keyboards and multi-track recording. Steve spent eight years working at the Sharpsteen Museum in Calistoga, designing and painting displays and murals, and has designed and painted murals in Napa and Petaluma. All the while, his musical experience expanded into rock, oldies, folk, bluegrass and ensemble and big band jazz. For decades he has accompanied numerous singer-songwriters and performed in local bands. He is currently guitarist, keyboardist, and/or accordionist with several of them. .

JOSE SIERRA (percussion) Jose has studied and performed with many percussionists, including Santana’s Raul Rekow, and has performed in nightclubs with R&B, Latin Rock and jazz bands (notably alongside reedman/bandleader Paul Vornhagen). Performing with Viva Brasil’s original drummer brought Jose’s career to a new level and he was soon performing in concerts, on TV and radio with The Force, a group that included members of Malo, the Freaky Executives, and Summers’ Heat. Jose worked as Coke Escovedo’s conga drummer and has performed with Roger Glenn, Pete Escovedo, and Ray Obiedo, as well as all-time greats Armando Peraza and Tony Williams.

Honor Few, Fear None...

"... I learned that, even in the showbiz world of hype and hustle, sometimes less is more, and the best PR move is to do and say nothing. Let people's imaginations fill the void. All strategies work, if they're applied at the right time and with the right artist. I never forget that." - Clive Davis
