I woke up around seven to make it into the city for noon for a show at Caffe Vivaldi in West Village. Joining me for the show was none other than VICKIE NATALE. Yes, THE Vickie Natale, star search winner, award winning jazz singer, as well as one of my best friends on the this earth. She and I joined forces with Dave Veslocki, co-producer of Virgin, as well as her soon-to-be released album Time Machine (And so many more amazing albums, singles and videos for other artists) for this show.
The show was very intimate in a gorgeous and very cozy red room with a BEAUTIFUL grand piano. Vickie and Dave played on set together and Vickie played the last set on her own at the piano, which was incredible. She is truly one of the most talented, beautiful, and kind human beings I have ever met.
Vickie and I also collabed on one of our favorite songs, "Fine And Mellow" for a wonderful duet as the final song. We were inspired by the spontaneous collab and have decided to start writing together this year!
See our duet here:
After the show, we headed to Little Italy, as we always do when we visit together (We being Vickie, Mama Lynn & I) and visited our favorite haunt, Cafe Roma for some Italian ice, pastries, & coffee!
Vickie is due to release her new album, "Time Machine" THIS YEAR. She has released a few videos for songs on the album, my favorite being "All Night Long".
Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day and I look forward to returning to the city very soon!
