Domaine NYC Tonight - SUNY Orange Fri - 20 years in NYC

Greetings.  Today is a special day for me.

Today is the day Marty McFly landed in the future in the movie Back To The Future, a movie that was a key point in my adolescence. Where's my flying car???

Today also marks my twenty year anniversary of landing in NYC. I had never visited the city before I moved here.  There adjustment period for sure.  Perhaps I'm still adjusting, as the city is always changing.  I've loved this insane place from the second I landed.  Of all of the decisions I made as a brash, hyperactive, inexperienced, and headstrong youth -- I can say that the decision to just go for it and take a chance on life in NYC in 1995 was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I could have ever made during my tenure here as an Earthling.  I look back now, and I still can't believe I did it.

Tonight I'll be celebrating in my 'hood at Domaine Bar a Vins, rocking a duo situation with the incredible Matt Ray on the piano.

Friday I'll be performing in a concert in Middletown NY playing Latin Jazz with Willie Martinez & La Familia Sextet.  If you're in that neck of the woods, it's a really wonderful festival, and the band, together for almost a decade now... is awesome.
