Yogi's Samba Jazz Quartet at Egan's, Jovino at the Kennedy Center!

Hi Music lovers,

This time you get a chance to hear me in a more traditional jazz setting (don't worry, there'll still be lots of samba groove!) at the luscious new Egan's Ballard Jam House - the club that puts Ballard on the Jazz map.
And my friend/mentor Jovino Santos Neto (and Cornish Faculty member), who is rapidly becoming the world's next most famous Brazilian Jazz Pianist, has a gig at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC (that's right - the other Washington) as part of NPR's Jazz Piano Christmas Show. Here's the rundown on the gigs:
