The Year in Photo - Lighter Fare

Didn't make much money, but we made a lot of art. I love that. Very grateful, humbled, excited for the next. We played in NYC last night opening for Cyro Baptista. A nice way to end. January I promise to commit every day, morning, discipline, commit, onwards - to making art.


To the photos.


PUEBLA, MX - Int Jazz Festival - May 2012 w/ Cyro Baptista - this was part of a two week run we did with Cyro. His energy and love is contagious, towards audience and band.

Cyro has a wrestler mask t-shirt he bought on tour. It requires lacing.
