I left New York for Lagos almost exactly three years ago and, last week, I finally celebrated the release of the new body of work created while away - The Lagos Music Salon.  Oh, what joy! 

My gorgeous band, my dearest friends, kind-hearted strangers who have supported me over the years, fabulous new friends in town from Lagos, and my beautiful, wondrous mother beaming front and center. 

I have no words to express the high I experienced that night.  I have no adequate tales to regale you with about the light I saw in the hundreds of eyes set wide and fixed in shadowy, nodding heads and my heart's attempt to reflect it back to them.  I can only offer each of you who were there or who sent love from afar or who bought the album my deepest gratitude.  ♥
