Brazilian Perfection!

Greetings Good Folks!

We haven’t been in touch for a few weeks. That’s partially because I’ve been listening to Simone singing “Tô Voltando” and if ever there was Brazilian perfection, this might be it. Do you know Simone’s music? I’m a fan and after you hear this tune you might understand how someone could disappear for two weeks.

In addition to listening to Simone I’ve been playing guitar with Peter Bernstein. I love this guy and his music is ultra bad a**! A true avatar of the six strings. Can’t wait to meet up again!

We had a great concert with Allison Adams Tucker and the boys at a fancy house in Solana Beach, celebrating Allison’s new recording Retro Trilogy. Great music and we even kicked in a few loops to spice things up. Be on the lookout for her new CD emerging soon.

Last weekend for two nights I joined up with pianist Billy Childs’ Chamber Music Ensemble, performing at the Blue Whale in Little Tokyo (in downtown LA). Incredible music, complicated, and detailed as it comes, spectacular musicianship, and good friendship. I met some new musos including Pam on flute, Leonard on sax, and the amazing Judith Hill on vocals. I’m so happy that I was in the loop with these folks!

For this week I have few shows and it all starts out at Terminal One Baggage Claim at the SD Airport on Thursday afternoon. Strange place to play music but it makes folks happy as they’re waiting to finally get the luggage and be done with this travel chore. Hah! It’ll be Leonard, Tripp, and me supplying the good vibes through sound. Join in if you dare…

Peter, Leonard, and Tripp.

On Friday afternoon it’s a easy going moment of solo guitar at the Flower Hill Promenade. I love this gig—honing my solo guitar moves, playing music out in the open, good people, Whole Foods is close. All good things and join in if you can…

The Carlsbad Eclectic Lawn Music Festival is happening this weekend and on Sunday at 1pm I have an hour solo set planned. It’s right there at Magee Park and it’s a pleasant setup to take in some sounds and visual stimuli. See you then…

There you go folks and thanks for reading along. 

all the best, Peter
