I am in NYC, and after riding bikes in Central Park and getting a near heatstroke (try climbing a hill on a bike in humid 100 degrees!), I went to my rehearsal and found myself racing down the street through a thunderstorm. As we rehearsed in a cubby hole underground, the roof started leaking. So, all in all a day of brilliant adventure, which also included great food, which is not at all unusual in New York.
In other news, my iTunes Session Release has climbed the charts and here I am at #13:
We also re-mastered & re-released my older EP Breakfast with Chopin - you can now find it on iTunes and it deserves a whole separate blog entry for itself, but for now, here is the new video we just made for the title track. We enjoyed doing this and I am glad Breakfast with Chopin now has a video all its own.
Tomorrow I am doing some press, rehearsing some more and Friday is the show. I'll be happy to celebrate this release in NYC, the city where I was born. It doesn't ever make it easy for me, but I love it very much. Who wants easy anyway? Not me. Ok, sometimes. But tonight I am here, I can feel and hear the buzz of the Big Apple and I am looking forward to the next two days.
