ARGENTINA, November 2017 – Buenos Aires, Cordoba & La Plata

I really enjoy visiting Argentina.  Love the music, people, food, scenery and all.  An exciting place.  Looking forward to my seventh visit, being with old friends and making new ones.  Thanks Ale´Demogli and Daniel Corzo for all you have done to assist.  I’m playing with an international group at the Buenos Aires Jazz Fest and at other locations.  Also teaching at a number of schools – EMBA and TAMABA also EMU - and presenting a master classes in Cordoba and La Plata.  Look for photos and more.

Great getting to visit Argentina once again, what an exciting country.  Best part was getting to see old friends and revisit some of my favorite places.

ITALY, July 2017 – Siena, Tuscany and Rome

Visiting Italy for seventeen days, what could be more fun.  Melissa and I got to spend extended time in Siena (while I attended the IASJ Meeting), various towns in Tuscany with our friends Daniela and Davide, ending with a week in Rome.  Melissa got to be my tour guide in Rome, showing me almost every square inch of the city all by walking.  Great time and I think the photos confirm this.  Highlights?  Too many to mention.
