Back To Reality!

Posted on Aug 17, 2011

I just got sick right before I came back from Europe last week. I missed the San Jose Jazz Festival, the phenomenal debut of Wil Campa y Su Gran Union at Stern Grove, most of Outside Lands and other noteworthy gigs! I worked at Cafe Cocomo with Julio Bravo last Saturday but I wasn’t 100 percent yet but the music was good. I also didn’t sound 100 percent on the radio since my engineer didn’t follow the instructions to run my pre recorded radio program…oh, oh all right! However good things are down the pike…I’m sharing a nite of fine music at Cafe Cocomo with the sounds of Avance (who are also fun and a fine band with great singers..and Karl Perrazzo is their secret weapon) on Thursday night, August 18th…I’m ready to play! Maikal Blanco y Su Salsa Mayor, one of Cuba’s hottest Timba/Salsa orchestras are slated to play at Cocomo in October. If that wasn’t enough…SF Jazz Fest promises the dynamic Daniela Mercury and hot Miami based band Tiempo Libre among the heavies in this year’s lineup. I’ve been back to work and it’s been sweating bullets…getting back to work is a mother after vacation.
