Hello Yellow Brick Road

Classic Albums Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 520x289

My mother had an 8 track deck, (no, not 8 discreet channels we all ended up using in the 80’s to record new songs… the old school ones that had ONE cartridge… click here for a link to see what they looked like…), and it was probably around 1972 when I heard Elton John for…

Our 2014 Summer Tour with REO

Ok, I’ve said it a million times before… I never planned… and I can’t say I wasn’t a believer… I really didn’t think that much about it… but if asked, I’d probably have told you my opinion… all of that hocus pocus stuff of *thinking* about what you want… and it’ll happen… (Law of attraction,…

Joe Sample

Joe Sample

I’m writing this on September 13, 2014. After I got done with my concert last night I got on the bus and Wally Reyes said, “Joe Sample died”.  I saw in Wally’s face how deeply hurt he was.  He worked a lot with Joe.  So did Lou… so our bus had a very somber tone…

All I Ever Wanted To Be…

10000 hours

All I ever wanted to be was a bass player.  My father is a bass player… one of the best that ever lived.  He was Elvis Presley’s bass player from 1969 until Elvis died.  He also was the bass player on “The Doors” L.A. Woman Album. Yup, “Riders On The Storm”, “Don’t You Love Her…

Pacino joins Chicago!!!

Al Pacino

Jason Scheff Resume:  Worked with Al Pacino I’ve always gotten a kick out of people who have resumes that include ridiculously bloated credits!  How can they possibly have worked with these folks? Well, I just happened to fall into a moment last Friday night that gave me one of those credits… I guess, it is…

The Strike

The Strike

Ok… here’s another one! Check these guys out… another INCREDIBLY talented bunch of people I got the privilege of meeting and working with while in Provo a couple weeks ago. They came and did a night with me during my sessions at Rock Canyon Studios… I’m still just reeling in the aftermath of one of…

BYU Vocal Point

I have not been able to stop listening to this performance, watching this video and now I’ve officially become McKay Crockett’s stalker. When I was performing a week ago at Rock Canyon Studios I met up with someone who gave me a slip of paper. It had “BYU Vocal Point” and McKay’s phone number, as…

Chicago and Blue Oyster Cult

I love it when this happens… So we’re pulling up to the gig last night and there is another band on… kind of feels like a festival… I don’t know… don’t pay enough attention these days! Just wind me up, point me in the direction we’re going and in between I’m working on all kinds…

Jeanne Arland Peterson

I had to put this video up. I’ve been processing the loss of one of my dearest friends, Paul Peterson’s, mother, Jeanne Arland Peterson. I’ve been reading the outpouring of love, sentiment and prayers to the Peterson family… and let me extend my condolences and celebration of her life. I was particularly struck by how…

Peter Cincotti

One of my favorite people, producers, friends, John Fields, will pop up from time to time and ask me to sing for a project he’s doing. He texted me one day and asked if I’d sing for an artist he was producing named Peter Cincotti… I had no idea who he was… (my fault… I’m…
