My impromptu performance with B.Cap and Santino at the Dragon Upstairs with the Jazz Minds family. My performance was dedicated to Santino (one of my vocal heroes who I met at the Dragon Upstairs two years prior). I will miss you Santino! Thank you so much for all that you've mentored me about Santino! Your vocal skills blow my mind.
