Diverse music experiences

This year has been an extraordinarily diverse musical experience so far. Here are some, but not all, of the highlights from the first half:

  • 2 trips to Mexico to play private parties and concerts with the great Jewish Cantor and singer extraordinaire, Alberto Mizrahi.
  • Performing my Harmonica Concerto, music of Bartok, Piazzola, etc with the Catskill Symphony Orchestra
  • A reunion concert with my old boss, Paquito D’Rivera
  • Several concerts and the start of recording a new cd (!) with Trio Globo
  • Great concerts in Europe with the Riessler/Levy/Matinier Trio
  • A concert with Paul Reisler and friends at Loren Maazel’s beautiful little concert hall in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
  • Sitting in with Steely Dan at The Chicago Theater
  • Playing 2 Prairie Home Companion Shows with people like Sam Bush and Gearlyn Steele, and getting to act in several comedy sketches.
  • A great concert with Ethel in NYC
  • A string of wonderful concerts with Chris Siebold and my son Miles on the East Coast
  • A Bluegrass show with Special Consensus
  • Playing harmonica with Sylvester Harper’s group at Chicago’s Gospel Fest
  • And Chévere, like Proud Mary, keeps on burnin’ with shows in Glen Ellyn, Evanston, and at The Green Mill and Fitzgerald’s.
