Back to Europe for some Hot Club jazz & a tribute to Belgian chromatic harmonica player Toots Thielemans.  Then to Cuba for a Celia Cruz set alongside local orchestra Malamanya – celebrating a CD release on Friday evening at the Cedar Cultural Center – and following up with the Pedrito Martinez Group !  A quick pass through Peru for Novalima and a set of Buffy Sainte-Marie in town Friday evening as well !  Closing up with a few African artists and another song from Prince – which still deserves heavy rotation !
