Spent the day jamming with guitarist Diego Melgar. We met last year at Univ of Miami Honors Jazz Camp, then again this summer at Centrum and Stanford. Diego also went to the guitar festival in Montana, where he got to study with Pat Metheny. 

Playing with the Latin Jazz ensemble at the Stanford Jazz Workshop. What an amazing camp and an amazing experience being there meeting so many great musicians and mentors such as Taylor Eigsti, Chris Potter, Chucho Valdes, Julian Lage, Harold Mabern, Eric Harland and Christian McBride. I really wish it hadn’t ended so soon!
