    Milan and Innsbruck

    Innsbruck Austria

    11:20am. It’s a really beautiful sunny and warm morning here in Innsbruck. I spend the morning walking around the old part of the city. We have been to Innsbruck before but I never had time to walk around the city. It’s an amazing place with beautiful views of the Alp Mountains surrounding the city.

    Yesterday we rode the train from Milan to Innsbruck via Verona. Traveling by train is so much more relaxing that by van or plane. The train ride from Verona to Innsbruck goes straight through the Alps, passing lots of small mountain towns with vineyards and castles. We arrived in Innsbruck last evening around 6:30pm and checked into the hotel. We met up with our good friend Markus Reuter who took us to a local restaurant for the best Schnitzel I have ever had. Markus is a touch guitarist and record producer that has done a lot of work with Pat Mastelotto and has lived here in Innsbruck for 3 years.

    On Tuesday evening, we played a show at the Blue Note Club in Milan. What a great venue. The production manager at Blue Note is Fabio Mittino, who we know through the Robert Fripp Guitar Craft courses. Fabio did an excellent job of taking care of us at the venue. And I enjoyed hearing about his recent guitar lessons with jazz guitar legend Pat Martino. The show at Blue Note was very good with the Moonlight Sonata being one of the highlights in the set.
