10.19.07 Haylie and Sammy

Haylie and Sammy Brown stopped in for a few songs, in advance of their gig tomorrow night at the Monterey General Store, which is officially one of my favorite joints. Except they don't allow drinking there, which is weird, because they sell a lot of nice wine there. I suppose one could drink in the car.
Tonight: Road trip with Dave Barrett, Larry Chernicoff and Phil Johnson to go see Anthony Braxton at RPI. Oh Boy!

Mah man Alex Torres is gigging tonight in Pittsfield as part of the Pittsfield City Jazz Fest so we played a mess o' Latin Kings stuff and got AT on the horn for a chat. Then Mr. Rogovoy stopped in to report on The Boss, who opened his tour in Hartford on Tuesday. Seth had offered me a ticket, too, and damn I had to teach.
