    He's got a week at Jazz alley in seattle.

    Playing out again? Wow. It's true about the stroke, and I believe he had some arthritis problems, too.

    That guy's piano playing will rule FOREVER.

    According to his online journal he played in France last month during the heat wave. Must be feeling better!
