It was a pure joy to perform for the 3rd time at the Jazz Bakery for the Happy Hour last Wednesday! A living legend of jazz, the amazing drummer Roy McCurdy was playing with us! And without a doubt, a future legend, bassist Mike Gurrola was adding his beautiful low sounds! Steve and I, we had, one more time, a lot of fun going over some Bebop and standards tunes! Can’t wait for the next time!
