Memories from Summer 2019 in Riga, Latvia

Recently published two video memories on my social media both from playing in Riga this summer and testing the big stage waters in Latvia with ABYSS. Performing at the Riga City Festival Jazz show and Latvian National Library Centenary Gala show – a special opportunity and honour.

Looking forward to see both of the videos released in full this year!

“Pablo’s insomnia” by a dear friend and great musician Tuomo Uusitalo at National Library of Latvia 100th celebration. One of this summer’s highlights with Ilona Kudina (fulte), Tuomo Uusitalo (piano), Reinis Ozolins (bass), Andris Buikis (drums).

Thanks to Ilona Kudina, Augusts Zilberts for organising – and everybody who came out to listen, enjoy and celebrate our castle of light National Library of Latvia 100th Birthday ????????

Thanks for the video to ???? Edmunds Mickus! His short documentary on the show and more of music can be found here:

The full concert was broadcasted by Latvijas Radio 3. You can listen to it online here ????…/noklausies-lnb-simtgades-svinibu-no…

Moment form this Summer’s Riga City Fest with ABYSS. On stage this time with Arne Braun (guitar), Povel Widestrand (piano), Josh Ginsburg (bass), Fabian Rösch (drums). Thanks to videographer Elīna Lieljukse for capturing the nicer shots!
