Needless to say, the local cats could play!!! Thus herein lies a standard-heavy set (and then some) with a choice selection of classic JHP cuts, interspersed with a fair amount of infamous #Julesbanter for good measure. Despite any language barriers and the impossibility of navigating the winding streets of Prague even with a smartphone during my visit, I think it safe to say all speaking the language of Jazz here forged a common bond, even an (albeit fleeting) overseas brotherhood on the stage of U Stare Pani this special June evening.
If you enjoy what you hear please consider a donation of $10 or more to offset the expenses of booking a self-funded tour with no manager, booking agent, or label deal....and if by some stroke of fortune you ever find yourself in Prague, do yourself a favor and look up where the aforementioned cats may be playing, cause you won't regret it!!!
