A few months ago, I played the Jazz No-Strano festival in Umbria (Italy) with Pieve Jazz Big Band, and had the fortune to play alongside Massimo Manzi, a wonderful Italian jazz drummer.
One of the blessings of living in Tuscany is being able to play host to all my friends from around the world. Not only do they get to experience a little slice of my life here, but they see beauty which is truly unique to the region. Last week, my friend and singer/songwriter Ashleigh Auckland stayed in my Tuscan apartment, and one of the ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences was to record and film this cover of City and Colour’s “Little Hell”. We borrowed a guitar, recorded at my house and filmed near my house at once of my favourite places, The Temple of Saint Maria of the Colledestro.
