October in Italy (and Sicily) playing music, working with students, seeing old friends, making new ones while visiting the sites….what a great way to spend a few days. Visiting Milano is always fun and many thanks to my friend and excellent pianist/musician Davide Logiri. It was great working with him and his students at Musictime, what an interesting/diverse group – from young students to business people stretching their musical skills, serious jazz musicians to retired military – all playing tunes and the blues, seeking advice. There was a very special evening playing with Davide, bassist Gianluca Alberti and Alessio Pacifico (who had become a new father just the night before). The concert was memorable.
