I just got back from playing 2 concerts in The Czech Republic. Thanks to the tireless work of long- time friend Slavek Hanslik, the experience was a wonderful one. I played at The Lucerna in Prague with bassist/pianist Larry Kohut, my son Miles on drums and percussion, and guest artist Jiri Stivin from Prague (a great player) on flutes. We performed a wide variety of material and got a great response. I hope to play there again, possibly in the Spring. We played a smaller show the next night in Brno.

Originally I was supposed to play a concerto in Munich (with Michael Riessler, Jean Loius Matinier and the Bavarian State Radio Orchestra) and then go to Prague, but it was postponed till Fall of 2001. I am really glad I went to Prague in spite of the unexpected cancellation. It is one of the world’s most beautiful and artistic cities and we came home to freezing cold Chicago feeling inspired.
