Out of this world gig at the Jazz Cafe... still taking it in. Last night was deep and rocking! Thanks so much to everyone who made the totally electric, buzzing audience! You were with us all the way and through the deepest moments! Incredible to share it with the phenomenal artists Ruth goller Jake long and Sahra gure who lifted it to another level.

The result is a whirlwind. It can rip the hair clean off the back of your neck."
