I'm proud to have been hired for one of his concerts at the intimate New York City jazz club, The Kitano, by the 2-time Grammy Award winning jazz piano player Alan Broadbent, "one of the greatest living jazz pianists - Los Angeles Times, July 2011.
Furthermore, "Solar" from his in 2010 released CD "Live at Giannelli Square, Vol. 1" had been nominated in company with Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis and Hank Jones for „Best Improvised Jazz Solo"
It has been a great pleasure to collaborate with Alan Broadbent, such a gentleman.
You can read a review of the 1st set on Saturday, September 24, 2011 by Dan Bilawsky, allaboutjazz.com. This review contains one of the photos I took to Alan after the concert
Thanks to Timo Sulc for his help during the recording considering I had, this day, the flue and a very painful muscular pain at leg.
Enjoy the video ;-)
