"What a great performance! What a fine performer! Further, he is an educator who connects on and off the stage with kids and adults in a very real way...he made an effort to really connect with my students after the performance. They were tickled to visit with Adrian and he dealt handily with the throng of new jazz fans that rushed him after the concert. He has a great "bedside manor" with both kids and adults and exudes a love of Jazz and live music performance. I watched Adrian reach the audience with his performance energy and his natural charisma. He's literally a "Pied Piper" creating new fans of Jazz wherever he performs."
