a few years ago
I was performing at Dick’s Den, a legendary club in Columbus, Ohio, with Eli
Vazquez and Roger Hines. I thought it would liven up the show to include a
comedy bit. So I worked out some shtick and after warming up an enthusiastic
audience with a few tunes, I started delivering my lines. At first I got polite
silence, then awkward shuffling, and then finally a heckler from the back of
the room shouted: “Do what you’re good at!” I took his sage advice, and the
rest of the night at Dick’s Den was a success. Now that advice has become
the title and goal of this recording. That is, write or rearrange nice tunes and
collaborate with amazing artists.
That is what I’m good at.
