Now hear this: Maya Azucena's energy as a performer is ultra-infectious, she is probably taller than you, and despite her wonderful voice and gentle nature, she may very well whoop your ass if necessary. The energy you see in this shot is where she is damn near at all times: positive, open, and friendlier than most. Proud to have recorded with this young lady on my first full length LP Connecting the Dots on Kindred Spirits USA back in 2005, and even more excited about our newest recording efforts, which you'll be hearing about in the very near future, right here. She beat the place up Wednesday night, and also coined the quote that ended last week's introductory paragraph - "If I don't die, that usually means I'll be okay." Words to live by.
