Ciudad de las Ideas

02012-10-07 @ 10:10

Jon, Chris and I will play a couple of short sets at Ciudad de las Ideas in Puebla, Mexico, on November 8th. Here is a little more info about Ciudad de las Ideas.

Afterwards we will return to Santa Fe right away to meet up with Mike Middleton (trumpet) on the 10th and perform as a quartet at the Lensic Performing Arts Center on the 11th. Performing at home is always special and I am looking forward to that concert!

2012 Reading List

02012-10-07 @ 09:10

My 2012 reading list, in no particular order. Could not put “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore” down and finished it yesterday, a little after midnight.

√ – simply means that I read the book. The unread titles are at the ready, mostly in the form of hardcovers and paperbacks, some bought used but most bought at Collected Works, which is a fantastic bookstore in Santa Fe – incidentally in the same location where I quit my last day-job in Spring of 1990.

I read three books in German. “Momo” and “Das Stille M├Ądchen” I ordered from amazon.de, and the Borges book I think I bought in a bookstore in Munich, when I played there in March. The discovery of the year, for me, was Nick Harkaway, whose two books I enjoyed very much. I read “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore” because Harkaway was raving about it on Twitter.

If you want to recommend a book to me, please leave your suggestion in a comment. Thanks.
