Alone Together – The New York Second

Yes, we play Real Book too, sometimes. And it was on the night of February 2nd 2017, playing at De Nieuwe Poort  in Amsterdam, that the spirit of Miles Davis and the great first quintet descended upon us. At least, there is no other way I can explain the magical groove that Pawel and Max laid down. And, as any self-conscious jazz musician I find it hard to appreciate my own improvisations, but here’s a piano solo that I can unashamedly stand behind. Making progress. The dining guests, who have no idea they were witnessing great music that evening, can be heard ordering their meals and will have forgotten February 2 by now, but we remember.
