Strictly Jazz // Elian Birthday Edition // Episode 116

Yes, it's my birthday smiley I don't normally like to make a big deal out of it, but this year is different. Despite everything, I feel like this year I have exponentially grown musically. My sound continues to evolve, my taste keeps getting infinitely more complex, and everyday feel a sense of gratitude for all of this, perhaps more than at any other time in my life. Some of you know where I'm coming from when I say: music is now more than ever a refuge, a sanctuary where you can feel alive, a place where you can be sheltered from negativity of the world. Music is a gift, it's a treat, it's something we can all relish.

And so on my birthday, it gives me great pleasure to share this source of life with you. Sit back, dim the lights, put the phone on airplane mode, and ENJOY!

MUSIC AND WINE Strictly Jazz // Elian Birthday Special - May 17 at Element // Episode 110

The music continues!!! This time, we bring the mwJazz vibe to Element Boutique Hotel, the cool hip spot where everyone loves to hang out. It's artsy and cozy, and there's an outdoor area with fans where many tend to gravitate. And most important, it's all fitted out with a nice sound system. They've got a wide variety of fun drinks and cocktails, and our guess is, more than one person will head home with half a dozen croissants and a baguette for breakfast the next day winking Just look for Mae Carl Perdon or Armand Lafare and they'll take care of you.

And did I mention it's my birthday? Nothing would make me happier than to celebrate another year of life with my friends. Drop by and give me a hug and a high five!

Once again DPGK will be stealthily taking those unique photos throughout the night. If you haven't seen his previous photographic coverage of MUSIC AND WINE Strictly Jazz parties, you're missing out on some serious art!

See you this Friday!
