      Last year Toronto set a record by hitting only five triples. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/02/sports/baseball/statistics-toronto-blue-jays.html This year they may set another record.  Thus far, they have hit only five sacrifice bunts. https://www.mlb.com/bluejays/news/blue-jays-rarely-utilize-sacrifice-bunts/c-294600434
    • What live music are you going to see tonight?
      On Friday, I flew to Albuequerque to attend a World Music festival, Globalquerque, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. It's a three stage festival (two outdoor, one indoor stage) over two evenings. There are ten sets a night, with about 16 groups playing over the course of the festival. On Friday, I heard-- Youssra El Hawary (Egypt). She plays accordion and sings; her music is charming and fairly enjoyable. Martha Redbone (U.S./American Indian/Appalachian/Brooklyn). She sings well; my level of interest varies with the source of her material. The main thing was she had Charlie Burnham on violin and Marvin Sewell on guitar. Jupiter and Okwess (Congo). A fantastic band. Mind-blowing Afro-rock. Great. Delgres (France/Guadaloupe). Also a fine band consisting of guitar/tuba/drums. A Carribean version of the blues. On Saturday, I heard-- Aynur (Turkey/Kurdish). Backed by two musicians (Piano and a stringed instrument I could not identify), this set was profoundly beautiful. Aynur is a fantastic singer and her band, soloing at length, was equally adept. I notice a fair percentage of the audience could not handle this music; I found it mesmerizing. La Dame Blanche (Cuba). This is Cuban jazz vocalist and flautist Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, performing a mixture of Cuban, cumbia, and electronic dance music--not what I would expect to respond to, but her voice is magnificent and powerful, the melodies she has composed are captivating, and her flute playing is also quite accomplished. Another superb set. Rio Mira (Equador/Columbia). This 8 piece band is constructed around the marimba, with three drummers and four vocalists. Heavily percussive music, which also proved enjoyable.
