I was the only harmonica player invited to audition for the Thelonious Monk Institute College Program this year. It was an honor and an amazing experiance! I got a chance to play in front of Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Jimmy Heath, James Newton and Kenny Burrell. Moreover it was my first time in LA…After the audition I spent the rest of the night in Venice Beach with a few girls. I ‘ll definetely try to come back there sometimes!
