european tour with jfjo #1

In 2006, I started managing my brother's band the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey full time. In March, after the group debuted at the Blue Note in NYC, we landed in Italy and went on to the Netherlands, Germany and Finland. One of my Italian friends invited me to be part of a group exhibition that he was organizing in Rotterdam and somehow my brother Brian and I both made our artistic debuts in the Netherlands in March '06. Tour managing kept me very stressed and sleep-deprived but I did mange to come away with some pictures from the tour.
