I got three surprises. I found a fabulous club, where the food was terrific and the music in a high level with Carli and his trio. He is an outstanding pianist and composer who also managed to realize the nearly impossible task of having his own jazz club. Located in Old San Juan , Puerto Rico , Carli's fine bistro & piano has an elegant charm that rivals any jazz club in the world.
