Back home in New York after playing some gigs out West. Tony Desare, Ed Decker and I played with the Oregon Symphony at Arlene Schnitzer Hall in Portland.
Then I played a concert of Peggy Lee's music for a fundraising event with Stacy Sullivan. We were at the Rosarito Hotel in Baja California. The proceeds from the event were designated to build a new dormitory, classroom and kitchen for the children at Los Angelitos Orphanage.
I was out of town for the first booking of Kristine Mills - Music of Gordon Sumner at the Metropolitan Room last Saturday but I heard it went great. The band was killing - Klaus Mueller-piano, Steve Whipple-bass and Tim Bulkley-drums. I had a great time writing the arrangements.
