“No way!!!”, said the veteran musician pulling out a cross in the middle of the street when I asked him if he wanted to be part of the big band. Another incredible video by Andy LaViolette, documenting the craziness of creating this huge project in the crazy city of New York! Only a few days left for this album to finally be out, thanks again to everyone who helped me bringing this project to life!
