Amiens. Too charming. Rick Steves would clean up here.
Bremen Teater, Copenhagen. Maybe my favorite show of this tour. Warm, friendly room and people.
Jardin du Luxembourg avec mes proches.

Had to set things right in Ghent last night where “Give it Away” and “Danse Caribe” were born. 📷: @cedricdepraetere
Audience at @letrianonparis last night. You guys were like the 6th Beatle out there. Makes all the difference when a crowd gives you that much love.
“My Finest Work Yet” European tour begins next week, a handful of tickets are left in Ghent, Paris and Milan. The others are sold out and Copenhagen is a few tix away from sell out. 📷:@hello_gambles
Developing the stage and all aspects of this Wiltern show and subsequent “My Finest Work Yet” tour. It’s going to be something. @abbyportner
Our time at the Deer Head In was all too brief. Great little jazz club. Bob Dorough’s (and many other greats) stomping ground in the Poconos.

Leading up to the LA Wiltern show June 3rd I’ll be doing sessions with all the members of my band 1on1 showing what great musicians/people they are. Videos coming soon by @hello_gambles
Dave Eggers asked me to send in a set list from a memorable show. This one is from Radio City in 2009. It’s being auctioned off to benefit Young Voices creative writing program: youthwriting.org/bid
I once spotted a canary yellow Hummer with vanity plates reading FOSSLFUELS. When did it become a point of pride to pollute our atmosphere as if out of spite. What’s it gonna take to get us all together on this? Art by @andreantoinette from the ‘Manifest’ video.
I just got this Roy Eldridge box set from @princeton_record_exchange. Here’s to the great record stores and the brick n mortar record shopping experience. Thanks to all those shops keeping it alive. @recordstoredayus @recordstoreday

So good to be back in uptown at the Green Mill. One of the great jazz rooms. Was a big part of my formative years. Thanks to Dave Jemilo for keeping this place on the right path all these years. 📷 © Patrick Monaghan 2019
Used to ride my bike to the green mill in the morning just to play the juke box. Where does the day go when it starts with a Manhattan and Marlene Dietrich.

Got to work with a real master on this cover. Thanks to @amandademme and her crew @maavven @leemorganfoto for bringing this idea to life. Rarely does a concept get realized exactly as you see it in your head. Amanda got the shot and so much more.

Get your questions ready. Andrew is going live for a chat, songs, anything goes. See you tomorrow right here on IG. 11am PST
Got to play a free show for the people of Austin for @sxsw Thanks for having me down. Was a good one. Big thanks to @alanshampton @madicunningham @tylerchester @abester8 and @thelinehotel of course- also, another thank ya @americanair for the constant playing of tunes on every flight. 📷: Merrick Ales
I've always wanted to do this William Bell song but I could never choose between the string part and the vocal part. I want to sing it but then I'd have to give up the string arrangement. This song is just a masterclass in arranging. Doing this with Yola was a dream come true - her instrument is pretty staggering, and on full display here. She’s truly incredible, if you don’t know her listen to her album. I’m very thankful @iamyolaofficial agreed to learn this & do it with me. Link in the bio 📷 by @sarahhhugs
