Thanks a lot, yes that's me and that was a great experience. I've played with Frank Gambale on a few occasions between 1988 and 1992, and yes that was very cool.
I have been invited backstage or at soundcheck for a few Chick Corea concerts as well, and that was a very good experience too. At Montreux 2004, maybe you know the DVD, the soundcheck lasted about two hours, and they played a concert that lasted about three hours in two sets.
I was about to have the pleasure to see Frank again in a few days, but his tour has just been cancelled because of Coronavirus...

Here is a playlist of me with Frank Gambale:

Thanks rhmbagirl! Yes, 28 years you're right, my son is going to be 30 and that's unbelievable.
That's also why I'm more experienced and I feel I'm better now ;-)
