I had a wonderful time at the Cork Jazz Festival. A bunch of gigs and all enjoyable. It was great to hook up with Honor Heffernan again for a bunch of mini gigs in Kinsale on the Friday night and Saturday morning.
Next was the Ella and Joe set with Stella Bass at the Ronnie Scott Room at the Metropole. Then a couple of "jamming" type gigs with Derek O'Connor, Paul Dunlea, Ryan Quigley and Paul Booth that were great fun.
A few days later I travelled to Prague on the invitation of Czech guitarist Libor Smoldas. Had a really nice time doing a workshop and some gigs with some great local musicians. A beautiful city and a really vibrant jazz scene. Looking forward to the next visit.
