Now, my base of operations is again Utah, having relocated there after my mother’s death several years ago, to be closer to Karen’s family and help care for her ailing mother. Karen decided at this point that she did not care to actively perform live any longer and that wanted devote herself to other pursuits. Not wanting to be creatively idle, I continued to write, record, and perform my music live. I have returned to my love of the blues and have recorded a couple more CDs of original blues and jazz tunes—“Blue Mundy (Part 1)” and “Blue Mundy (Part2)”—with my new performing group, “RANDY MUNDY & THE MUNDY MOURNING BLUES BAND”. I am currently working on a third blues and jazz CD, which I hope to release later this year. Life is good when you can do what you love.
