Autumn is in the air!
I'll be at the Village Vanguard every night through Sunday, soaking up the sounds of Tootie Heath with my husband Ethan on piano and Ben Street on drums. Their new album is my favorite in a long, long time. Nate Chinen got it right.

Misato Kamegawa, three-time NYC Golden Gloves champ, took time to chat with me for Stiff Jab.
