I just got back from the IASJ meeting in The Hague, Holland. It was a great week of music and musicians. Dave Leibman is the artistic director and he has put together a great organization with the focus on music. The students there were musicians of an unbelievable level and the teachers were spectacular. To make the week particularly special the honored guest was Reggie Workman. I had met Reggie before but had not had the chance to really get to know him. He is a truly wonderful guy and a musician of incredible depth. I was honored to spend tiime with these wonderful musicians and inspired to work harder than ever to continue to learn and teach whatever I can about this music.
