Today I am celebrating the most meaningful achievement of my career. Last night was the live album launch concert of "Settling Up" at The Jazz Bistro. What one can hope, is that in their lives there are meaningful people, meaningful experiences and meaningful work. I am happy to say I have it all. I feel blessed. Yesterday I was surrounded by so much love, surrounded by music of such a calibre it could make you dizzy, and playing to a room interested in the music written by me and my dear friend and colleague - music and words that I am deeply proud of. The Jazz Bistro was FULL. People gathered to witness live jazz - original music they could not sing the words to (yet) - and celebrate not only me, but the outstanding musicians that all gathered to support the album as well: Mike Freedman (co-writer, producer, MD), Adrean Farrugia (piano), William Sperandei (trumpet), Bill McBirnie (flute), Chris Adriaanse (bass) and Max Senitt (drums).
I feel like I won the lottery. I am thrilled to have shared the music out and can't wait for what lies ahead. :)
