Moi? Jazz? Upstate? Oui!

I had the honor of being invited to perform a song with Premik Russell Tubbs at his birthday celebration at Bean Runner Cafe in Peekskill, New York.

Premik is a very talented flutist who has performed with just about every major artist from Herbie Hancock to Whitney Houston. Premik also played the saxophone and clarinet at the show.

There were so many talented musicians who came to celebrate with Premik on stage. My friend, Girshel Javakhishvili, himself an accomplished pianist, was a member of Premik’s band that night.

I was in awe of the great jazz music I heard Saturday night as well as the depth of knowledge attendees had regarding the genre.
