I’ve just returned from Zacatecas, Mexico after a very successful performance and Master Class with Terrie Odabi and her band. Zacatecas is a beautiful old colonial mining town several hours north of Mexico City and the concert promoters of this Jazz and Blues festival created a beautiful performance venue in the sprawling atrium of the Modern Museum of Art (Museo de Arte Abstracto “Manuel Felguérez). Terrie put on a command performance for the 400 or 500 in attendance and had the place up on their feet dancing and singing. I was humbled by such a generous crowd that met with all of us afterwards. We all felt like rock stars for a day, signing autographs and taking “selfies”. What a beautiful city, filled with beautiful people that know how to have a great time.
