JFS #52 NYE w/ Pat and Aya Martino

At the time he told me "Jake, I am really excited about what's about to unfold." At the time I accepted the compliment but did not take it seriously. Now sitting here on the precipice of a new year, after over 100 interviews, using several of these interviews to help complete a book on Cal Tjader a tribute concert to Gene Russell, and finding a family I never knew existed I now know what he was referring too.  My guest hasn't had a bad year himself.
