Great concert! Great band! Really, the name of the show should have been SOCORRO & ACQUAINTANCES cause that was the first time we played together. Some of us met for the first time at the rehearsal/soundcheck that afternoon but everything went well. That's the beauty of jazz, it's so spontaneous and creative! Proud of it!

Yesterday at a gig, a woman, a grandmother, actually, came to me at the piano and said, "When you play, your heart is in your hands." - Wow, how sweet, so reassuring!
She kinda reminded me of my grandmother who used to tell me," You will never grow old because you have music in your heart."
It's as if my own grandma came to visit me again "through" this woman yesterday, also a grandma, and saying that my heart is in my hands when I play the piano, like an extension of what she used to tell me before, about having music in my heart.
Oh, how touching! How magical, how miraculous!
Thank you, Lola Ceria! OK, Lola. I love you and miss you. Thanks for the visit. Rest in peace.
OKAY, OK is my Lola Ceria's "legacy" to us, her family and loved ones. Whenever she said the word on anything or anyone she wanted good things to happen to, things would really come out well. The family used to call her our living saint when she was alive. Now she's our family's saint looking after us from above!
Indeed, when Lola says ok, it's OKAY! Everything is all right, all fine. It's truly magical and miraculous!
Thanks, again, Lola! We love you.
