A Jazzy Cabaret

It was such a pleasure, listening to my music performed by my daughter, Mimi Johnson, pianist and musical director Roberta DeMuro, the fantastic entertainer Edlene Hart, and jazz vocalist TC The 3rd, with Ethan Neuburg on bass, Tim Moss on drums, and saxophonist Carle Vickers. It was a terrific evening with lots of friends in attendance, 106 altogether. Sparks were flying all evening!
