Presently, Tony maintains the busiest world touring schedule imaginable, including festival appearances in Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Germany, Italy, Scotland, Holland and Spain, as well as Canada and the US. In 2007, Tony celebrated a special anniversary, celebrating 40 years as a musician and appearing on the cover of Keyboard Magazine. Tony's drive as an innovator and missionary continues to carry forward his passion for the Hammond Organ. Now Executive Producer of the Summit Records subsidiary Chicken Coup Records, he has recorded and released CDs for several undiscovered organists around the globe, and his role as educator has allowed him to spread and cultivate many new hopefuls to the art of the jazz organ. Tony continues his mission to raise awareness and appreciation of jazz organ and its importance in genres as diverse as traditional Gospel, RnB and Modern Jazz. He is now Hammond/Suzuki's prime instrument endorser worldwide. Tony has recently joined touring and playing with Pat Martino. He has begun expanding his educational series to include other organist and styles with his new MotherHenMusicEd.Com to be launched in the Spring, 2009. He is formulating new strategies and record deals using his network through Chicken Coup Records to help himself and his peers advance in this ever changing music market and utilize new technologies and markets. He has begun writing his first book "The New Music Business" as he hopes to share and teach our future greats the new way of doing business in the Music Industry today. In August 2009, Tony turns 50 years old as he prays to continue to play his music around the world.
