Jayhawks show and a great Spanish wine

My super good friend Michael Nieves was in town last night for the epic Jayhawks show and he generously let me be a plus one (he’s Mark Olson’s manager, not to mention my band Nous Non Plus’s licensing agent).

Before we hit the Paramount theater for the show, we shared an awesome bottle of Marqués de Murrieta 2001 Rioja Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial at Trio, still very young in its evolution but generous with its ripe red fruit and beautiful acidity “supporting” all the elements in the wine, as they Italians say… Great stuff…

Over dinner, Michael and I fondly remembered the night before I left Los Angeles to come visit Tracie P (then still B!)…

And amazing show… one of those shows that reminds you how powerful great songwriting can be, especially when paired with one of the greatest duet singers on the Alt Country scene (up there with Gram and Emmylou imho).

Thank you, Michael! You are one of my oldest and most cherished friends…

It’s just two hearts that make us pay…

  1. Thanks, Jar…it was a really great night, and a wonderfully fun hang replete with superb wine (as is always the case when we get together).

    Cheers,
