For this tour I have decided to get my ass out of bed early to take a solid one hour walk around the places that we play in before leaving (unless we have a 4am lobby call). This morning I ventured outside of Bolzano into the hills covered in vineyards.. Autumn in these parts is an eyeful!
Good times in the south of France with Sarah McKenzie. Here’s a pic from our show @espacemalraux in Toulon. Now to Bari! ✈️

An honor to be in Sicily for the first edition of the Palermo Jazz Festival, playing tonight with the great “palermitano” pianist Mauro Schiavone and bassist Pietro Ciancaglini in the Church of San Mattia ai Crociferi. (It’s not the one in the pic, btw) @palermojazzfestival

Used on the remastered double cd release of “Live At the It Club”, this photo of Thelonious Monk was taken by Don Hunstein, as the pianist was standing near the jukebox at Manhattan’s Blue Angel in 1963. ☕️
