Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceWhen I had just moved to NYC and worked as a roady for Kenwood Dennard, Jaco Pastorius asked me to come up and perform with him and Hiram Bullock at the Lone Star Cafe with a packed lunch time crowd. I was over the moon for months after that and it was a great start for me in NYC!
