On April 2 2010 the Quartet was invited to play in Minorca, Spain. It was the first European date since the birth of this project and it was a very successful event. This concert fell right on my birthday. The name of the festival was Jazzobert, which in Catalan means "Open", just like the title of the album that I'm promoting - now available on Itunes. Some pleasant unexpected coincidences.

The quartet featured - just like the recording - Michael Blake, Giovanni Guidi and Joe Rehmer. We played some material from the album, a couple of Blake's originals and some free improvisation. The audience was warm and receptive. Nobody smoked during the concert and I was told that it was a big  sign of appreciation. Here's a couple of videos from the concert.
