Be humble, thankful and grateful to those who have invested their time, energy, listened and shared with you.

Happy Tuesday and hope all are well. I thought I would share a phone interview I did last Wednesday (4/12/17) with Sara Troy, Self Discovery Radio. This interview is somewhat lengthy but goes very deep into concepts and issues not normally covered in an interview, at least not that I have been a party to. My apologies for the loudness when I am speaking ... I had no control of this as it was a phone interview (my speaker phone lol). Lastly, I want to thank and compliment Sara immensely for her mastery of this interview. Great discussion and direction in the topics we discussed together ... I welcome your comments and hope you enjoy. ...
Please mark this date ... Thursday, June 15, 2017, CD Release Party at The E Spot Lounge at Vitello's located in Los Angeles (Studio City). Wait till you see the all-star musician line-up joining me ... absolutely incredible. Event details forthcoming. Your support is greatly appreciated, mahalo. ...
Enjoyed being on stage with some of the best musicians! Playing some low down blues! John Novello, Tony Moore, Tony Saunders, Kevin Wong, Rick Parma, Geoff Alpert and Bill Hampton Tony Smith #jazz #fun #smoothjazz #bluesmusic #trombonist
I'm climbing the charts with my CD on Smoothjazz.com! Thanks for the support. Sandy, Sue, Donna, Rowan, and The Gorovs . #grateful #smoothjazzglobal #smoothjazzradio #jazztrombonist #jazz #Sandiegojazz ...
OPEN YOUR HEART #GeoffAlpert
In the funky hands of emerging recording artist Geoff Alpert Music, the trombone becomes a melodic and sensual Smooth Jazz lead voice. Alpert’s debut solo album OPEN YOUR HEART draws from his passions for jazz, pop, R&B, soul-jazz and Latin music. Get it today on iTunes, Amazon and in The SmoothJazz.com Listening Loft.

Just got home from running errands and find that my Consultant, Michael Sutton, posted my album entering the SmoothJazz.com Top 50 Charts at #34 ... thanks Mike. I feel so blessed and am amazed to see all that is happening and this is just the beginning. There is so much more coming in the near future.
One thing I'd like to share and am totally blown away by ... I found out yesterday, that Downbeat Magazine (yes Downbeat Magazine) will be reviewing my album in their July issue. I grew up following Downbeat. Feeling truly blessed. Mahalo to everyone. P.S. Big thanks to Tom Estey. ...
Happy Tuesday everyone ... thought I would share a few things I have been reflecting on lately. I am amazed, grateful, blessed and humbled at the response I am/have been receiving with the release of my debut album, "Open Your Heart". My single (Heartbreak Hotel) and the album are being added and played on radio throughout the world, receiving great reviews and climbing the charts very quickly ... not too shabby being a brand new independent solo artist.
I want to express my sincere mahalo's (thank you's) to everyone who has been and is making all this possible. Thank you to Gail Jhonson, everyone who were involved in the album production process (musician's, engineers, etc.), Michael B. Sutton, Tom Estey, Gorov Music Marketing, SmoothJazz.com (Sandy, Sue and staff), the numerous radio and internet individuals who are playing my music around the world, MY FRIENDS and FAMILY, etc. (sincere apologies if I inadvertently omitted anyone). Thank you to everyone who has liked and joined my FB Music Page ... THANK YOU!!! ...
