All I can say is, Crystal Torres called it. In December of 2012 I met her in her hotel room before my very first rehearsal with Beyonce and the rest of the band. We were catching up and she looked at me and said, “Adison, this is going to be a really good year for you. I’m excited for you”. She called it. This year has been UNBELIEVABLE! For all I knew, I’d still be at Juilliard right now finishing my master’s degree.. But instead.. I’ve traveled the world many times over playing the saxophone with the biggest pop star in the world.. Beyonce and the Mrs Carter Show..
I brought in the New Year with her last year at the Wynn in Las Vegas, then we played the Super Bowl..
I’ve traveled to so many places, that I’ve never even dreamt of going to..
I met with friends old and new around the world, from Australia to Warsaw, Poland..
I’ve played for 50k people or more for 110 nights..
I’ve become part of a whole entire new family..
I started Adi’s Jazz Kitchen!
And filmed my cooking show with some of my favorite people/ musicians..
Oh and also! I am able to start my discography with this one..
Thank you to everyone who has supported and pushed me through one of the craziest years of my life. I am so grateful for your love.
I am so thankful and blessed. SO blessed.
I look forward to even more in 2014! I wish you and yours a happy and healthy New Year!
The lack of a kitchen on the road really infuses a deep sense of excitement (over the normal amount) within me when it comes to good food.. As you can see by this video, I am more than thrilled when our “after show” food is us getting our own taco truck. You can also see, that I’m not the only one! (Both of the Larry’s, Crystal, and Rie seem to agree)!
Been having a blast, Melbourne. See you for show number 3 tonight!
Sorry I’ve been gone, but since the end of the South American leg of Beyonce’s Mrs Carter Show involved a whole lot of jet setting and no sleep, my immune system crashed on me when I finally got home.
So I spent a good two weeks in bed being sick. However, I did manage to get out of bed to go to a gala event with my sweetheart!
Damn. I accidentally just erased all that I wrote.. Now I have to type it all again. (On this iphone) agh.. Ok here goes take 2..
Besides getting in a lot of rest this break I also did work on the second episode of Adi’s Jazz Kitchen cooking show! I’m very excited to put it all together and release it to you guys as soon as I recover all of the data that is on my hard drive that just crashed it sounds bad, I know.. But I’m sure that once I come across a Genius Bar, we’ll be set!
Anywho, back on the road again. Stuck in Sydney airport.. See video below.
Mr Bear is here too..
That’s all for now. See you soon,
