Tokyo Notes

As I write this I have just one more show in Tokyo with my boss, trumpet player and icon Herb Alpert and his wife, singer Lani Hall.  They did a residency at the famous Blue Note Tokyo jazz club. 

When I'm not globetrotting with my own music, I get the pleasure of booking and taking these legends (and their band Bill Cantos, Hussain Jiffry and Michael Shapiro) on the road as their road manager. This trip they were kind enough to ask me to join them on stage for their 1960s Tijuana Bras hit, "Bittersweet Samba." 

What an honor to hang with these Jazz greats!!!
