Last evening (November 4th) I had a great time playing at Fresh Starts Restaurant in Flossmoor, Illinois with Valerie Nicholson (piano), Eugene Vinyard (tenor saxophone), and Ivan Taylor (bass). The idea is to continue on the first Friday of each month, but in December there is a special event already planned there. I hope this turns into a regular gig with these great musicians. By the way, the food and wine selections are real nice and reasonably priced. I will keep you posted!
