Monday 17 November: In Montevideo, Uruguay preparing for the South America tour. After a greuling 30+ hour travel from Vienna via London and Miami, with long layovers in each, arrived in Montevideo Saturday afternoon leaving the rest of Saturday and Sunday, with a grill party lunch and a short rehearsal at the festival Promoter's (Philippe Pinet) house, to recuperate from the travel. Monday (today) starts with a "Creative Practicing" workshop and then a rehearsal with the Trio of local players (tenor sax, bass & drums) for the concert at the Festival Tuesday night. Tonight dinner at the Spanish Embassy. So far, so good. http://www.jazztour.com.uy/shows/2014/festival.html
Next stop Cordoba, Argentina where I'll play together with Dena Derose. Then off to Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo.
The fund raising campaign for the Into the Now CD is closed, as of November 2nd.
