We are so thrilled that Esperanza won the Best New Artist Grammy! She couldn’t be more deserving. We’ve played eleven shows so far since the Grammy awards on Feb. 13, eight in Japan and three in the states: Portland, USC & UCSB. The audiences have been warm & engaged. And we’ve been having fun! We’re about to tape the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in a few minutes…we’re watching it on the screen in the green room right now. Jimmy Kimmel tapes in a studio on Hollywood Blvd. and it’s still blocked off from the Oscar’s last night. Catch us on you tube….actually, check out our performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno from Jan. 31, it was a blast, and the hairdresser went to town on the band…my hair looks like a flower arrangement! More US touring in March coming up and then to South Africa (Capetown Jazz Festival), Europe for two weeks (including Barbicon in London), and then the Casablanca Jazz Festival in Morocco. More soon!
