I just got back last week from a few weeks in Europe, travelling around by myself, and playing with different musicians in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Vienna, as well as two solo concerts in Poznan and Warsaw, Poland. It was an incredible experience on many levels…..friends in Chicago keep asking me how it was, and I think the easiest way to answer that is by listing some of the folks I played with, saw play, and hung out with….
