These guys were amazing ! So glad I got to play a few tunes with them. Gabriel Coburger – sax and flute, Ken Norris – vocals, Matthäus Winnitzki – keyboards, Sven Kerschek – bass. We were at the same festival , Juu Jääb , in Estonia on Muhumaa Island .
I really enjoyed playing in Estonia at the beginning of July. They have a real sweet little jazz fest on Muhumaa island. Very beautiful place. I played a few tunes with a wonderful band from Hamburg , Germany called Gabriel Coburger and Quintet Jean Paul. Also got to play with some great players from Sweden , Hakan Lewin ( alto sax ) , Aldo Meristo ( Estonia – piano ) , Wade Mikkola ( Finland – bass ) and Thomas Tornroos ( Finland – drums )
Got a nice review for my CD ” 5 4 3 2 1 ” in the Chicago Jazz mag.
Here I am performing as my alter ego , Honey West, in Morris Gearring’s show ” Something About Oscar ”
a tribute to the late great Oscar Brown jr. , with Calvin Koko Brunson, Kwame Steve Cobb, Harrison Bankhead, and Enoch Williamson. Morris is taking his wonderful show to NYC in a few weeks. I hope they have sold out shows and much success !
