Well, here I am, back in Kitchener-Waterloo. I’ve already heard from so many old friends and have made some new ones in the process.
My first gig was within five days of my arrival, a Friday night appearance at The Jazz Room in Waterloo, which I’m told, is the area’s hottest jazz venue. It was certainly hot on Friday night. I played with Andy Klaehn and his quintet, and had the opportunity to work with guitarist Keith Murch, drummer Andy Macpherson and pianist John Zadro. It was a wonderful evening with a full house audience, a listening audience at that.
There’s not much more to say at this point, except that it’s great to be back.
