There isn't even a cover charge at this restaurant... nothing but fine music and a crowd full awe-struck admirers.
Yes whenever my own personal schedule allows i'm there drummercan to hear the master at work with the trio featuring my good friend and long time musical comrade Al the bass player in this group. I think you and your buddies were there a couple of weeks back in the center table when I was hanging out with some old friends and the band well checking out the show. That solo Gilberto played on the "Seven Steps to Heaven" at the end of the night was a real trip,he just keeps sounding better every time I hear him.
Great opportunity not to be missed agreed considering no cover and the serious level of quality of the music going on and Gilberto is so funny and always a joy to hang out with and of coarse HEAR!.
