Thanks to the incredible Deborah Davis, I had the opportunity to visit and perform in Beijing, China to round out a wonderful and busy summer. We played at the beautiful Blue Note Beijing for two nights, and we also had a few days to explore the city together as a band, and travel to a section of the Great Wall. I feel so fortunate that I got to experience this magical culture for the first time, and I'm already excited to go back. Thanks for everything, Beijing!
