I had the pleasure of playing two nights at the beautiful Club Esse in Moscow, Russia at the beginning of this month. Packed houses for all sets! Thanks so much to trumpet player Vitaly Golovnev, dubbed the "Russian Lee Morgan," for the invitation and to the rest of the band for the incredible music. I was only there for a grand total of three full days and yet somehow we managed to fit 4 full sets, a whole lot of fun, a good amount of vodka and a trip to the Kremlin and Red Square in there. Vitaly was the most gracious (and quite hilarious) tour guide and host. Music is the best way to see the world! More of that, please.
