Well, I just got home from a Ray Brown Tribute concert featuring Benny Green, Jon Clayton, and Jeff Hamilton. Man, one of the best concerts I have been to so far this year. The concert wasn't the only great part. Tonight, I actually got to meet Benny Green, one of my favorite piano players of all time, right behind Oscar Peterson, Tommy Flannigan, and Barry Harris. Well, I mentioned how I was going to be making one or two trips a year to New York and he actually gave me his email address! Geez!

What a great person Benny is! He is extremely nice and is an amazing musician too. I can't believe this. In the last 30 days, my wife and I have bought a house, I met Kevin Mahogany and was given his contact information, and I also get to meet Benny Green! Now when I get to see Rory again this Thursday before he moves, my life will almost be complete.
