Donna Lee at Rolling Meadows Library

Here’s some YouTube video of this past weekend’s performance of Donna Lee (9/22/13).

Thank you to the Rolling Meadows Library, the Friends of the Library, and everyone who attended for having our trio for the Arts Alive Concert Series. We made some new friends and I was thrilled by who showed up! Everyone seemed to have a special place for jazz and music in their hearts. It was a real honor to play on such a beautiful day.  The Rolling Meadows Library’s piano is in superb condition and the tuning was spot on – a special thank you for that!

The trio sounded great thanks to my friends Frank Alongi (drums) & Alex Feldman (bass).
