Summertime and the livin’ is easy…..

August 19, 2008
Dear Everyone,
Summer is almost over and it seems that the brief heat wave we had has lost its steam. Thank you to all who came at the Cellar Jazz Club. We had a great time and the music was superb. As usual, the band was fabulous led by Miles Black on piano, Gabriella Ciurcovich on bass and Nino de Pasquale on drums.
Next week, August 29 and 30, I will be performing at Rossini’s in Kitsilano. This is my first gig this year at Rossini’s (since I’ve been away the first half of the year). So please drop by, have dinner or a couple of drinks. Bob York Trio will be backing me up and I m sure you’ll have an enjoyable evening with us. My set starts at 8:45 till about midnight. For reservation, please call 604-737-8080.
Talking about Bob, we were at his “Do Nothing Cozy Cove” in Belcarra and we had a lovely afternoon devouring our picnic lunch, swimming (ocean) and soaking in the hot tub (salt water) and then climbing 150 steps of stairs. The tram is a work in progress right now, so if you have problem with your breathing, stay on the dock. The Indian Arm (Burrard Inlet) was so busy with kayakers, canoers, boaters, swimmers. It felt like we were sitting on Robson Street people watching. Thank you to Bob and Ingrid for a wonderful time.
Yesterday, my friend Arlene and I got stuck for over an hour in an elevator on the 8th floor of her condo building. This is one of the most dreadful things that could happen to you especially if you’re afraid of heights (Arlene) and claustrophobic (me). It was hot and waiting for help took forever (it seemed). We kept our sense of humour telling each other’s stories. It got so hot that we tried to imagine that we were in an igloo. When that didn’t work we tried to relax by sitting (doing a yoga pose) which also did not work because Arlene started banging the door and pressing the bell 10 times. When they plucked us out of there, it felt like being recued from a disaster zone.
Keep cool everyone. Thank you for your support and see you at the gigs. Hasta Pronto! …..Armi
