NOTES FROM THE ROAD - CYRO PERFORMS WITH HERBIE HANCOCK AT THE SONOMA JAZZ FESTIVAL


Since I started playing with Herbie, I have never seen him work as hard as he did for this concert. Herbie was a true warrior and was very courageous to put together this stellar group of musicians from scratch. Many of us had never played together and some of the songs - especially the ones from the Possibilities CD - were played for the first time ever.

After 11 and a half hours of rehearsals in one day, and a 4-hour sound check we jumped on stage and the concert came out like a beautiful story.
I was so thrilled to play with Marcus Miller especially on Tutu, one of my favorite songs ever, and besides being one the best bass players, he is an amazing human being and a an incredible bass clarinetist!!!
