Bruce, Jerry & Gabriel

June 10, 2016

It was great to see my old friend Bruce Gertz with Gabriel Guerrero and Jerry Bergonzi at Shapeshifter Lab in Brooklyn last night.  Bruce, Gabriel and I pIayed quite a bit as a trio back in my  Boston days, and we always had a special musical connection (and made a ton of great recordings).  I fished out this old photo of us playing with Jerry at The Acton Jazz Cafe about 10 years ago.  I look so young (Bruce and Jerry look pretty much the same, and sound incredible.  Must be the red wine).    The post-show hang included Bruce's former student, bassist and  Shapeshifter co-owner  Matthew Garrison giving us a sneak peak at  his cutting-edge music software project, and lots and lots of reminiscing.  And there's some talk of making a trio recording  next time Bruce makes it down to NYC.    I hope we can make it happen!
