Write Up of Carnegie Hall Concert by Nate Chinen in New York Times

Nate Chinen wrote a very kind article about our May 28th concert at Carnegie Hall.  It is rare for any of us to have a writer hear us for real and then be able to translate the sounds and the energies behind the sounds into language.  Nate is a great listener, great writer, and great reporter.

Here’s a link to the article.
