To all my friends and fans at the Blue Note Tokyo and in Jakarta,
On December 3rd I underwent reconstructive surgery on my right achilles tendon to repair a 21 year old injury. While I’m presently in rehab and cautiously getting around, my surgeon strongly advised against making this trip to Japan and Jakarta.
So it is with sadness that I will miss these performances with my Fourplay brothers. However, be assured Fourplay will maintain the high creative standards set over 20 years. The band has enlisted Clarence Penn to fill in, and I’m sure he will create a fresh excitement with the band on this tour.
I truly love Japan, the Blue Note Tokyo, and all you fans.
I will really miss you and being a part of this experience, but am encouraged by the fact that when fully recuperated, I’ll be better than ever.
Thanks again for your support, and I hope to see you later in the year.
We wish him a quick recovery and send best wishes!
