Webmaster's) absolute best friends and David Foster's brother-in-law, has a web site for his
own software company specializing in
applications for Windows. His brain is sharp as a razor and his background as an outstanding
engineer in the music business, rendered him for instance a nomination for a Grammy award for
the JARREAU album. Read more about Ian on his own section on Jay's
web site for instance about how he invented the Vocal Splicer.
Meet Stefan Olofsson
Webmaster's son and a great jazz fusion musician. Listen to his music and enjoy!
State Cows is Stefan Olofsson (songwriter,
keyboards, bass) and Daniel Andersson (songwriter, vocals, guitar). Among other gifted
musicians you will find Jay Graydon, who delivers a superb guitar solo on one of the
tunes. This album is a triumphant return of the classic Westcoast sound of Pages, Steely
Dan and Airplay. A new album is in the works for 2013.
2nd Arrangement is a Steely Dan tribute band out of northern Sweden.
Formed in the summer of 2007, they are all die hard fans of the music and their mission is in brief to let people hear
this great music live, not just on CD (or vinyl if you're bent that way).

Bill Goodwin - Master Magician.
"When thinking about the album cover photograph for
the JaR Scene 29 album picture cover shoot (photographed
by Denise Marie Luko), I had
a vision for the set, which is a close up magic room in the Magic
Castle noted as The Hat and Hare. The Magic Castle does not allow
photographs so it was time to call in a favor from my good friend,
Bill Goodwin, who is the best of the best close-up magicians in the
world and is the librarian at the Magical Castle. Bill's clout pulled
this off. So when doing the photo shoot, I asked Randy if tit would
be OK to include Bill in the photo as to have three guys sitting at
the poker table playing cards. Randy agreed leading to the JaR album
I have noted the above since if any of you are interested in learning
close up magic, please check out Bill's website." - Jay.
