I had a wonderful time playing with David Jernigan (bass) for Willie Nelson and family, as well as Michael Feinstein, who spoke first for the ceremony and later performed "Embraceable You". There was a full house of distinguished guests who were very appreciative. Michael Feinstein is a huge supporter of the LOC and was wonderful to speak with. He is extremely nice and has a vast knowledge of American Popular Music. It was an honor to be a part of this celebration. Special thanks to Burnett Thompson for having me on the gig and to Steinway Piano, DC for the wonderful and beautifully tuned instrument.
