Massive thanks again to the Verboten crew and all those that came out and made this night a truly special one. I was extremely honored to play with one of the greatest artist that the culture of Hip Hop has seen and I couldn't stop myself from smiling. The crowd at Verboten was really great and kept it going till the morning hours. Plus, the soundsystem is definitely one of the best in NYC. Great vibes all over, was definitely a night to remember. Peep the snapshot of me and Qtip for a general idea of the good vibes...can't wait to be back! More pictures up soon...
Had the pleasure of playing some tunes for Damon and the lot with these two fine Gentlemen, Khalil Livin' Proof and Paulie Lovejoy! Damon went into full Ping Pong battle mode and had several matches, including one against Christina Hendricks! Lovely night!
Super excited to finally get this going here. Everything is still a work in progress, but yeah, check back here for updates on events and to get info about life, records and cat pictures. And to start things off this Monday, I'm thrilled to rock the turntables tonight at the Ace Hotel in Manhattan with the one Joel Davis from All City Sounds! I'll be on from around 9-10:30pm, playing an all vinyl set that will mostly be alot of 45s and a few albums and 12"s...one record that you definitely will hear is this little gem that I found recently on one of my diggin' trips. Barbara Carroll's "From the beginning" (sic) is a wonderful jazz track from the album with the same name from the late 70s. This now 90 year old lady was - in the words of Leonard Feather - "the first girl to ever play bebop piano". And she can definitely play piano! Enjoy!
