Just had a fantastic month and thought I'd share/brag about some experiences. First, I got to meet Quincy Jones at a reception. He was very nice and approachable. Despite the fact that all the people asking for autographs and photos were keeping him from eating breakfast. I had my photo taken and he signed a copy of my Sinatra/Basie CD he arranged. He showed me the signet ring Frank gave him to.

The other cool thing was sitting in with a band in Guangzhou (Canton) China at the first West meets East Festival. The real kicker though was his pianist was a Canadian Chinese guy who was Oscar Peterson's student! Very intimidating but he was a really cool.

Finally, my regular band played a luncheon for 12 former African Presidents. The crowd liked us so much, we made the former President of Botswana dance!


Don't you love what we do?

I love this post!!! Keep up the good vibes!

Peace!
