How great to be back in NY: not just to catch up with music pals like Laura Cantrell and Michael Shelley and the nicest bassist in the world (just ask Ronnie Spector) Jeremy Chatzky; or indeed to have Ira Kaplan jump onstage for a jam...
...but because of Junior's Cheescake.
And because when riding the NY subway stuff like this happens:
Boston and Philly shows were fun. Great to meet Princeton professor of music (and pal of Norman's) Dmitri Tymoczko
|Beautiful Autumn whizzes by|
|Blakey's back onstage in Boston|
This was a groovy diner...
Window shopping in Cleveland...
|Tempted - but those trousers would be wasted behind a drum kit|
|Splendid grub on West 6th St.|
Cleveland just made the World Series. Might help make for a fun time at tonight's show...
Keep in touch.
