On our way to New York City from Washington D.C. our bus had a flat tire. Perfect. We missed our sound check at the Apollo Theater and literary had one hour and a half when we checked into our hotel until the show would start at the Apollo.
Anyways, I think the stress made us all more nervous and excited to play which resulted in the most amazing show. Everyone was killin’. So proud of everyone and to have been a part of this program has been so overwhelming and I feel enormously grateful to have played with all these new musicians from all around the world. The journey with Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead 2016 will continue in a new way I am sure!
