Another Concert Canceled? (Laughing/Crying Emoji)
Back in Italy a month now, excited to be practicing with a great new trio and with the Caffé Jazz Quartet, which just got a couple of gigs I wanted to add to my concert listings, a page that has been, sadly, mostly **CANCELED** U.S. shows. But I was grateful to have played at all this Summer. On The Buskers' calendar page, you'll see EVERY last show got canceled.
Time to start fresh. I had to update the format, anyway. But I saved a screen shot for posterity; to bear witness to what it's been and will continue to be like for performers of all kinds, pretty much everywhere, for who knows how long.
And now –it's almost funny– of my first shows back in Italy so far [see below], this evening's has been canceled; rain is forecast. Until today it hadn't rained once in weeks and weeks! But I'm not giving up. Next up: jazz standards in Florence on Oct. 20. This was originally scheduled for April [see above] i.e. in the midst of the lockdown. Yeah–I mean no, that didn't happen. But no complaints; I still have a roof over my head and food on the table.
Check back in soon; with a little luck, more shows will be added; I have so much music I want to play for you. And, as they say, as we've been saying for months, now, stay safe. And wear the mask. Over your nose, thank you very much.
