The latest newsletter from local jazz man Curtis Stigers makes me embarrassed that I complained about being tired and went to bed at 9 p.m. last night.
With new album Lost In Dreams at his side, Stigers is currently in "The Country That Loves The Hoff" (Germany) playing 14 cities in 17 days as well as two dates at Duc des Lombards, a jazz club on Paris' Rue de Lombards.
Then tomorrow, he jets off to London to host—not play, host—a concert and live broadcast tribute to Johnny Mercer, the American singer-songwriter who penned the likes of such classics "That Old Black Magic," "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "Jeepers Creepers." The show will air on BBC Radio 2, but if you can't tune into that, you can listen to the show for the following week online at BBC.co.uk.
On a side note, a recent People.com article suggests Kevin Costner is Germany's new Hoff (as if that's a compliment). Maybe People thinks so, but now that the Germans have seen Stigers, they may not want Costner or Hasselhoff back.
