A week and a half ago, I sent a note
to Ravi Coltrane's outstanding pianist Andy Milne, who I saw perform on a rainy night in La Jolla.
He sent back the following response to my e-mail:
Thank you very much for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed the concert last week. (sorry it took me a week to get back to you, I've been travelling a lot of late - currently in Italy).
Had I known I was busy making new fans up there, I would have been a little more agressive about selling my new CD which I had on hand that night. Ravi talked about it during the 2nd set cause we played a song from it. Oh well, with any luck, perhaps the Athenaeum will have Dapp Theory there this fall when the CD drops.
I did notice it being a little thin during the 2nd set but overall it was a great crowd for a rainy night.
Anyway, I'll add your email to my mailing list if you don't mind and inform you of future southern cali gigs.
This is a very cool cat.
