The gigs are fewer, but mightier this month, starting with “Emancipation Day” by Paul Novotny, Alana Bridgewater & Robi Botos in Ancaster Ontario. Then I back Sundar Viswanathan as he sings & plays some classic Duke Ellington along side Bossa Novas in Toronto’s castle like “Home Smith Bar”. Finally, I’m backing a real legend in vocalist Alemayehu Eshete. I’ll tell you, he has his own Ethiopiques CD collection, because his catalogue of hits from the ’60’s & 70’s is large. He’s a biggie!
