December - On December 5th my NEC experience came full circle. I moved to Boston 5 years ago to learn more about the jazz tradition, but being here led me to the wonderful opportunity of sharing the stage with Jaques and Paula Morelenbaum. They were on all the Jobim albums I've been listening to since I was a little kid, and playing with them was a dream come true. On top of that the incredible Brazilian drummer Rafael Barata also played with us. This is definitely the closest I'll ever be to playing with Jobim, what an honor!
