What an honor it was to guest with the Katie Thiroux Trio at the ASMAC/Los Angeles Jazz Society holiday party. I have always wanted to sing with Katie and Matt, and of course have been a huge fan of Justin Kauflin’s since I saw the documentary “Keep on Keepin’ On,” which details his musical relationship with the late great Clark Terry. Justin is a protege of Quincy Jones. He is of course a superb musician and easy going, with a good sense of humor. It was not only a great musical experience for me, but a solid hang.
