Taking a Bite of the Big Apple

My job has brought me to Manhattan for much of this week; hence, few new posts. It's a lot of work during the day and a lot of fun at night. This city truly has some of the best restaurants in the world and places to go, people to see at all hours. Talk about sensory overload!

The highlight so far? Gerald Clayton -- a young, jazz pianist appearing late nights at "Dizzy's" at Lincoln Center. Dizzy's is a remarkable room, with great acoustics and a breathtaking view of Central Park. And, speaking of breathtaking: Clayton just might be the second coming of Bill Evans. Playing with a stand-up bass and drums, his set was short but his abilities seemed to have no end.

Gerald Clayton ... remember that name jazz fans!
