    Playing again w/my old pal Brian Kent at our favorite women's clothing store in Seattle. Basically a background gig, we still play good music. Standards, of course....lots of Monk, Mingus etc., and a whole boatload of original material that Brian and I have written together over our nearly 20 year friendship. This is always a fun hit.
