You don't want to miss this if you are anywhere near NYC on Friday evening,
December 7, 2007. Young Jonathan is simply superb as are the rest of the
boys in the band. Barbone Street has had the pleasure of performing with
Jonathan several times a year since he was 8 years old and are simply amazed
by his talent as an improvisational jazz musician.
