We had an amazing tour of Mexico!! I opted for a ‘brassy’ version of Trio Tarana, and took Rick Parker (trombone) and Aakash Mittal (Alto Saxophone) with me. We played in Mexico City at the amazing Zinco Jazz Club, Centro Cultural Espana, and Fundacion Sebastian. Then, we played two shows at Cafe Central in Oaxaca, and ended the tour with L’Arrosoir D’Arthur in Cuernavaca.
In additional to those amazing venues and audiences, we were deeply honored to have been guests of one of Mexico’s greatest living Sculptors, Sebastian, and were treated to amazing hospitality that we’ll never forget! Deep thanks also to Eugenio Elias, Matias Carbajal, and Oscar Adad in Mexico City for their support as well. A big big thanks to Yadira Castenada down in Oaxaca for showing us true southern hospitality (and the super-amazing audiences too!), and last but not least, to Benoit and Amaury in Cuernavaca for the amazing time there as well!!
