Well, I got to visit my old hometown (Kalamazoo Michigan) and family for Christmas. I didn't get any trumpet related items, but I did visit my favorite blues club for a jam session. I didn't have a horn, but I did play a set on organ....
It was really great. I haven't played with a group for quite some time, and it was really nice to do it again. I might even go back one more time before I head back to the Nashville area... and this time with a trumpet!
So I guess that "Santa" brought me the opportunity to get back into a great music scene and enjoying some truly awesome jam time!
