We met Son3 at 6 o'clock as his last class ended and he brought us tickets to Jazz at the Lincoln Center and the incredible talents of Christian McBride and his big band. He is just wonderful as a leader, performer and musician. I have rarely seen such an engaging affable stage presence. If you have never listened to him before check him out . You might like him.
After the concert we went to P.J. Clarkes for coffee and/or drinks and snacks. While there we ran into Son3's friends and they joined us at the table. So we had an accountant type person, a SAHM with no kids at home, one trombone jazz studies student, 2 studying music composition, and recent graduate studying classical French horn.
TheHub and I sat and listened to most of the conversations and were fascinated by the thought processes of creative people Who would have ever guessed a 5 minute piano piece would be based on the timing of an NBA players 3 point shots? Or thought a table discussion would be about the most perfectly composed opening to a song (Stevie Wonder was the hands down winner). And who were the 2 gaped mouth fish out of water?
