Suited up for Olympian feats of derring-do. 📷 @hello_gambles
Here’s a recording of me, @madicunningham and @alanshampton playing an acoustic version of "Olympians", plus an updated duet version of "The Gotholympians." Roughly the same idea from different perspectives. "We Are Olympians" is available to stream everywhere now. *** artwork by @hello_gambles
We’ve been out there playing “My Finest Work Yet” which feels so good to play live top to bottom when this came out of nowhere. I’ve been asked to play an undertaker in 1950 Kansas City named Thurman Smutney in the 4th season of Fargo. Cant pass up a challenge like this and the show is outstanding so... 📷: @amandademme

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.

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 laid down some strings on @therealjimbomathus new record “Incinerator.” This is “Really Hurt Someone” get out your kerchiefs.

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.
