"If you like an instrument that sings, play the saxophone. At its best it's like the human voice." - Stan Getz
I'm a musician (piano & voice), composer, lyricist, writer, and poet, raised on jazz and good music, literature, and the arts. I also love animals, humor, gardening, organic chemistry, science, and things that are soulful, universal, and most of all, HIP.
Thanks to my hip parents, I was in the single digits when I first heard Stan Getz on that famous Jobim album that is probably ingrained in most of our psyches. My sax playing mom loved his tone and the way he played, and from the first note on, so have I.
Great that you're here, too! Alan tells me you're taking up guitar building to prepare for an interview! Is it too early to send you blueprints for an original Selmer petite bouche? I could use a luthier-built Gypsy box.
Heading to Cape Cod for a couple of days of R'nR. Talk to you when we get back! Hi to Michael...
I can't wait to read your review on JB, by the way. And no monkey pictures. At least yet. I remember that, years ago., a baby wooley in an East Northport, Long Island pet shop that tried to steal my glasses (guess he dug the hornrims) and I would have brought him home if I could have afforded the $4,000 price tag!
Electromacuted...I am going to steal that! Are you OK? I have CNN on in the background and they are talking about some pretty bad weather over a large part of TX. I might not see your message til mid-evening, but wanna know all is ok. I wish we were all the Jetsons so we could hop on some kind of fast, space-age vehicle to see those dear to us whenever we want - I'd be heading your way (after the storms, of course)!
