It was a remarkable experience reading my poems with the accompaniment of the Jim O’Halloran Trio on February 25, 2022 at Kezira Café. Jim’s a wonderful musician, bandleader and arranger. He consistently attracts quality players like D’Vonne Lewis on drums and Farko Dosumov on bass. That it was the first public reading of Haibun de la Serna made it all the more significant for me. A book that had a publisher withdraw 6 years ago and then got picked up by Koon Woon’s Goldfish Press. I am keeping a list of gigs updated here. I am scheduled to gig again with Jim’s trio Friday, March 25 from 6-9.
