The days after the 'On the Other Hand' concerts

The days after the 'On the Other Hand' concerts. They went well, I think. I taught again today and couldn't help integrating some Kenny Werner into it. I even did the first step with two students. I quit another school and I have plenty of time of time to teach my current students. I enjoyed and it's great to have enough space in my head!
Check out Branford Marsalis and Willie Nelson, some fot he Wynton solos I have heard!!!

Well, back from the dead

Well, back from the dead... hardly from the dead. Back with lots of new inspiration from Kenny Werner, the author of Effortless Mastery... Studying, but trying to let go now.
Great stuff, check it out: kennywernerlive.com

In New Jersey now after spending some days in NY

In New Jersey now after spending some days in NY. I am doing a workshop with Kenny Werner now, in Effortless Mastery. It's a great method of playing and making music. Based on detachment from music, playing and judgement.
Tonight I am going to hear my friend Ivo play in Manhattan and then tomorrow back to Jersey!
