Why Am I Hugging This Man?
About a year later, Neil called me, and asked about my thoughts on Oscar Peterson, for liner notes he was writing about a Verve reissue of “On The Town”. Those liner notes were read by the great magician and pianist Michael Close, who came to see me playing in Las Vegas and brought along his friend Penn Jillette. We got to talking and in February of 2002, I started playing in the Penn & Teller show! So, Neil actually is responsible for my gig at the Green Mill, and with Penn & Teller.
