12 on 14 Jazz Club Warsaw, Poland

Here’s a short clip of my live piano solo on Freddie Hubbard’s Birdlike at the 12on14 Jazz Club in Warsaw. My first gig in Poland. Birdlike is a 12-bar blues. We got a standing ovation and demands for an encore, something I’m told rarely happens at the 12on 14 Jazz Club. I guess people are too cool!
