I had every intention of doing daily captions this last tour to Spain but I had no time! The majority of time was spent in beautiful Santander with several concerts in the surrounding area.
I had the pleasure of being reunited with my regular band - Gerard Nieto on piano, Ignasi Gonzalez on bass, Esteve Pi on drums and Toni Solá on sax. On the first concert in Teruel, American born guitarist (now living in Barcelona) Dave Mitchell accompanied us. Wow, what a great player! I guess he would have to be to play with the late great Jack McDuff!
My last day there I had two recording sessions, one with pianist Ignasi Terraza and the other with guitarist Peter Bernstein. They are stellar musicians! Check out their websites.

In a few days, check out my GALLERY for new photos!
I'm back from my work/vacation and what a wonderful time it was!
In the Canary Islands we played the festival then partied with afterward till the wee hours of the morning. Ran for trains, drank champagne (in Champagne) and sat in with the band at the La Huchette Jazz Club in Paris. And in Iceland soaked in the Blue Lagoon, rented a car and drove 323 kilometers (each way!) to the glacier Vatnajokull and tried cod liver oil. Why you ask? I'm still asking myself that!
Hope to see you sometime, somewhere and soon........
