Sunday in the Theatre with Jason

I spent this past weekend with two of my favorite men on the planet, the amazingly talented, and awfully darn nice Jason Graae and Rick Jensen. Jason, one of the funniest humans I have ever met, flew in from LA to do a gig in the wilds of New Jersey, and he invited me to come along as a special guest artist. Knowing a good time is always to be had when one is with Mr. Graae I leaped at the chance. My pal Rick, composer, arranger, accompanist and all round good egg was at the keyboard for this one. It was a great gig! Jason never fails to make me laugh uproariously even after having seen and worked with him many times over the past few years. He is a master of making every moment feel fresh and spontaneous. There are always a few delightful surprises when he's on the stage. With Rick keeping up with him on the ivories much beautiful music was made. I got to sing and be silly, and it was all bliss!!!!!
Here are some snaps of my wonderful weekend...

Miss. Wendy, these memoir miniatures of your performances, that you and Miss. Laurel post here, amount to treasures. They're especially valuable for being (nearly) contemporaneous with the (blissful) performance. Thank you thank you both. More bounty!

Ahh, thank you so much. It's nice to know that the posts are being read and enjoyed. I'm happy to say we've got a whole lot more coming up in the next week or so. We have not yet begun to type!!!!
