Woke up in Basel to find a Steinway grand in my host’s livingroom. So, I’ll be spending the better part of my Basel day in my pajamas. Last night’s show & exhibition at Parzelle403 was great! Met so many excellent humans, drank beer, and fantasized about which Simone Näf piece I would buy if I had the dough. #treasurehunt #tour #blog
A whole lotta snow in Maloja. 3 days of writing relaxing eating playing chess and making slides in the massive banks of snow (aka Poor Man’s Snowboarding). En route to Basel where I’ll play at Simone Näf’s exhibition opening @ Parzelle403 this evening. Switzerland has been very good to me… Feels bittersweet to be leaving soon… Munich & Czech Republic next. New songs abound. #ilovemyjob #humansaregreat #schweiz #blog #tour #instamood #inspired #switzerland
En route from Zurich to Sargans yesterday— the Walensee. Tonight I play Jazzkellar in aldstadt of sargans. Last day of a 6-show run, and my voice is feeling strong and healthy! (Helps: no liquor, lots and lots of water and sleeping in.) #blog #heidiland #tour #nofilter #livemusic #schweiz
