I met Alejandro Escovedo last year in Austin at a SIMS benefit concert. Tons of Austin musicians came out to do a Stones tribute. It was sweet! But sweeter was the genuine
conversation with Alejandro. I will bug Rob Joyce till I die to bring him to Jazzfest or the series. More people need to see this remarkable talent!
