Don’t call it a comeback…

I figured I had better leave a note here before the web journal police stop by and give me a citation for not having fresh entries. I’m alright, I’m okay. Just busy as ever. I took a little break to do some other important stuff like listening to new music, checking out a couple of concerts, and getting a little fresh air. The SFJAZZ Festival began last week and I attended McCoy Tyner’s opening night solo piano performance at the Herbst Theatre and saw Mavis Staples in her tribute to the music of Mahalia Jackson at Grace Cathedral last Friday evening. Last night, I went to see Ledisi with the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra in a tribute to the music of Ella Fitzgerald at Yoshi’s. Tonight, I am going to see Cecil Taylor in his solo piano performance at the Palace of Fine Arts.

    Okay, I won’t knock you out! And I won’t complain because you gave me enough links to research, I should be busy for a while. I will continue to enjoy all the shows vicariously.
