At The New York City Bar Association's Bar All-Star Revue organized by Havona Madama I performed "Let Me Be," "Don't Leave Me Behind" (from The Golf Wars) and Tu Pac's "I Get Around." I had the pleasure of welcoming Maria Guccione back to the stage with her singing "I'm a Stranger Here Myself" and "Buddie Beware." Other performances by Jonathan Perkel, Ondine Darcyl, Ellen and Frank Estes, Elizabeth Keitel, Jennifer Shafer, Erik Hanson and Tyrone Mark Powell. I played piano for Erik's performances of Flanders and Swann's "Have Some Madiera, My Dear." (Forget the Rohypnol. A swig of this and she awakens with a smile on her face and his beard against her cheek.)

"Welcome to my Inner World. ... There are no flies on me!" -- no, not here.
Last night Steve Espinola and I wrote a song for collaboration night at Sidewalk. Steve Shiffman on guitar joined us in our presentation of it, which followed immediately thereafter. It was another instance of spontaneous combustion during an evening that began with The 48 Hour Spontaneous Combustion Production at Manhattan Theatre Source. There may be a stillness to the inner world, but in the collective outer world it's like we're living fifty years in a day.
