Well, last time I blogged on here I was headed off to Poland for another 2 weeks of Jazz festivals and concert halls with the Bill Evans band. It was a great experience and I will never forget it. Normally, on a European tour, we are flying and driving from country to country, never sitting still for more than 2 days. It was great to absorb the culture and history of one country for a change! I attended many after-festival jam sessions and met many world-class players. A real treat! Upon my return, I spent another week in NYC, taking in the urban landscape and plethora of modern jazz that I love so much. If you've never been to NY, I suggest you go. There is no cuisine, music, or culture you can't find there. There's even bluegrass and a few banjo players. Having been away from my new home for over a month, it was great to get back to Nashville. I was quickly swept up in the nash-Vegas scene, attending record-release parties, concerts, and late night hangs. It is truly a big change up from my former home in NC. Here I am in NY blogging again. This week Bill Evans is taking us to the Syracuse Jazz Festival, where we will share the stage with Mike Stern and Chaka Khan. After that, I will be in Ohio teaching bluegrass music to aspiring classical violinists, looking to break outside their mold.

Poland sure is an interesting country, we also just toured there. So much baggage left over from bygone times...
I'm still wondering -why do they still eat so much cabbage?
