Screen grab from the short film "A Singularity." Actually I'm freezing. It was cold out there!



Rick Joswick - Swing Dance Party Rick Joswick - The One Eyed Jacks

I've recently completed a documentary entitled "Swing Dance Party" about the musical journey of Jumpin' Joz" (Rick Joswick) a multi-instrumantalist and vocalist who was a member of the rock & roll group The One Eyed Jacks, whose members included Mike Murphy (future member of REO Speedwagon), hit songwriter Tom Kelly, Hollywood music supervisor Budd Carr, and Hollywood film & TV composer Barry Fasman. This band was the first group ever booked by legendary personal manager and record executive Irving Azoff. Joz fell in love with swing music from a very young age, and as the world's preeminent swing drummer he has fronted the Jumpin' Joz Band, a driving force of the Southern California swing scene for over three decades.


"A Singularity" is my philosophy of life in 4:37. Shot across four states, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, this film is a time bending journey that explores the meaning of presence in our lives.
