Playing at Hillstones

It was a wonderful night to play with Phil Maturano(ds) and Jennifer Vincent(b) at Hillstones in midtown NY. It is really upscale & sophisticated restaurant and bar with nice Steinway grand piano! Fun to play some Jazz standards that I haven't played for long time like; Stella By Starlight, Foot Prints, Cute(!), Nica's Dream, No More Blues, Darn That Dream, All Blues, Someday My Prince Will Come, etc.... 


Mother's Day Latin Jazz Concert

Emmanuel Presbyterian Church presented Mother's Day Latin Jazz Concert on May 12, 2018. It was successful ! Elder Cummings would like us to play sometime in a few months later for an another event to activate the neighborhood in lower Eastside of Manhattan. I am happy to play for our community people. See you next time!
