Free MP3 Download of the Month. 

This month's free MP3 download is Connie, a song Mark wrote for Connie Jacobs, our friend and boss for a short time, when Mark played his weekly gig in Port Orchard. We lost touch, and Connie left the area. Connie was smart and funny, hard-working, honest, fair and a joy to be around. We miss her and hope she is doing well in her new role. Mark played Art Foxall’s tenor saxophone on this recording of Connie.
