I am a Los Angeles-based twentysomething. I have a profession, and I have a secret life in music, and this blog isn't about any of that. I like Blogger because I can't read what you're thinking.

SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME
Brad Mehldau leads jazz trios and solo composer-pianists from the New York City area in an exploration of jazz improvisation and creative collaboration during two intense days of master classes at (Le) Poisson Rouge.
Please note that this event is not open to the public. [Carnegie Hall]
I got invited. I'm still pinching myself.
I don't care if my time in NYC only lasts 48 hours. Having some, even a slice, of tutelage from Mehldau himself is something I could have only dreamed about years ago. It's not hero worship; throw the man away, and it's being in the presence of stark, applied creativity alongside like-minded musicians. I am very, very lucky and I am very, very grateful.
