With my friend Dr. Salvatore Moltisanti, creator and artistic director of The IBLA Grand Prize Piano & Voice Competition. Photo 2011 in New York City the evening he invited my trio to play in Carnegie Hall. Played my arrangement of “The Star Spangled Banner with Italian Ending” (a piece he asked me to arrange in Europe a few years earlier) – now track #8 on our new CD, “New Directions.”
