    This will be another house concert with with the wonderful and rock solid rhythms of Laura Mordecai (Beto y Los Fairlanes, Libby Kirkpatrick) and violin maestro Javier Chapparo (director of strings for Stevie Wonder in Austin). I hope it doesn't seem I'm bragging. It's just that these guys are top shelf and I'm fortunate to be working with them, looking forward to sharing the vibes, you bet!
