Fall line up of great jazz!

I'm back in Austin after a wonderful gig at "Jazz at Kitano" in NYC with Peggy Stern who played her ass off on that beautiful Steinway piano, and Harvie S on bass who is an absolute delight to make music with.  Jay Clayton graced the stage by sitting in on a tune with me and George Oldziey joined the set as well later on.  It was a great evening of music in a great room and I thank everyone who came out the club to hear us!
