  1. MLB 2021 Hot Stove League

    Fortunately the Guardians are not close to mattering, so I can safely focus on other things (like the young core playing for the Cleveland basketball team).
  2. Are these links already shut down? Or do I need to try a browser besides chrome and edge?
  3. This past weekend saw the Shorter/spalding opera Iphigenia twice at the Kennedy Center. Very briefly spoke to Danilo Perez and John Patitucci afterward, and said hello to Wayne. Glad that he made it to DC for these performances. He received a hearty reception from the audience after each performance.
  4. John Oliver closing bit. 5 minutes total, starting w China creating islands in the sea (skip ahead 90 seconds if you like). Kenny appears to have a sense of humor in that he stifles a few laughs while playing (...not quite to the level of Michael Jordan on SNL but...). John Oliver China and Kenny G - YouTube
  5. MLB 2021 Hot Stove League

    Briefly met Mr. Minoso and had him autograph a baseball at Jacobs Field. Sadly, type of pen/ink (Sharpie?) or baseball not the best. May take some time for me to acquire some guardian merch.
  6. Stephen Sondheim RIP

    Live on your NBC affiliate tomorrow night. With Harry Connick Jr as Daddy Warbucks. Set your VCRs.
  7. Dizzy Gillespie Complete RCA

    A favorite! In high school I had a cassette dub of a collection called "Dizziest" which I believe overlaps a fair amount with this. After just a few listens, "In the Land of Oo-Bla-Dee" makes me think of Dizzy reading a picture book to young children (...beret optional...). Or a retirement celebration in which attendees take turns vocalizing over "Oop-Pop-A-Da". This CD incarnation gets pulled out a fair amount. Fun to sing along to while driving.
  8. I Went to a Mall Yesterday

    The mall of my youth in suburban Cleveland, Randall Park Mall, has been been purchased/repurposed by Amazon. Ditto a few others in NE Ohio
  9. Fingers crossed indeed. Good luck!
  10. Curtis Fuller - RIP

    Because Space is the Place!
  11. Milford Graves and Jason Moran: Live at Big Ears

    I've been enjoying this one a lot, as well as Jason's preceding solo piano release on Bandcamp The Sound Will Tell You. Have not yet listened to the YouTube conversation between Jason and Milford.
