Last night I played 2 sets of music at Local 269 in Manhattan. First was a freely-improvised set with Jen Shyu and Oscar Noriega. I was kind of nervous about this at first, since I don't generally do free-ish stuff. But I think it went pretty well! It was HARD but FUN! The 2nd set was with The Holly Martins, and was one of our usual greatly rehearsed affairs. It went over well in general, but I was quite disappointed with my inaccuracies in a couple of places. But wow... so fun to play for a serious listening NY audience (during both sets, in fact)! I feel very lucky that it was like that, particularly since I don't live there.
