I’ve been playing at Newport Beach for years and they always have a great lineup at the Newport Beach Jazz Festival!  This year I had a chance to hang out a bit with my friends Brian Culbertson, Eric Darius and Alonzo Boden – one of the funniest guys ever!  And it’s always good to see my friend Al Jarreau!  We played Newport Beach the day after the very hot show in Las Vegas and the party cloudy weather there was a nice treat.  I still regretted forgetting my hat – that won’t happen again!
A special thanks to Pat Prescott for having me on The Wave to talk about my Newport Beach show and HandPicked!
